LG will unveil its latest Ultra PC laptop, Tab-Book 2 hybrid, and all-in-one PC at CES 2014 in January. All models will feature Windows 8.1, LG's IPS display technology, and a slimmer form factor than previous iterations.
The Ultra PC (Model 13Z940) is LG's 13.3-inch ultrabook, equipped with a fourth-gen Intel i5 processor, and either a 128GB or 256GB solid-state drive. According to LG, it will weigh less than 1kg and measure 13.6mm at its thickest point, not to mention have 4.4mm bezels. One of its unique features is Reader Mode, which makes background images resemble paper, reducing eye strain and power consumption.
LG's new laptop/tablet hybrid, the Tab-Book 2 (model 11T740), features an 11.6-inch screen capable of reaching a brightness of 400 cd/m2 , 10-point touch control, and a slide-out QWERTY keyboard. The Tab-Book 2 also comes with the same fourth-gen Intel i5 processor that the Ultra PC has, and weighs 1.05kg with a thickness of 16.7mm. LG stated that there is a smaller unit (model 11T540) that weighs just 930g and measures 13.7mm thin, but didn't release its size.
Finally, the company's all-in-one PC (model 27V740) comes with a 27-inch screen, Intel processor (type not specified), and an Nvidia GeForce GT 740M graphics card. This unit will have a picture-in-picture feature that allows for simultaneous internet browsing and TV viewing. An HDMI jack is also included.
Pricing and availability have not been released yet. It's worth noting that LG does not currently sell any of its laptops, tablets, hybrids, or all-in-ones in the United States.
