It is a well know fact that I like my gadgets bulimic (they rarely eat so there’s not much mess) and skimming on calories like there’s no tomorrow is LG’s stunning new laptop.
The Xnote T1 is a 14.1in super waif which is just 21mm thick and weighs a miniscule 1.9Kg. Its tight dimensions are backed up by chockablock hardware too with LG managing to squish inside an Intel Core Duo L2300 1.5GHz processor, up to 4GB of RAM, an 80GB HDD and a choice of two displays: WXGA (1280 x 800) or WXGA+ (1440 x 900).
WiFi, Bluetooth, a fingerprint sensor, 5-in-1 memory card reader and – incredibly – a dual layer DVD rewriter also make it across while there is a choice of six or nine cell Li-ion batteries. You’re not going to be fragging anyone with the integrated graphics but you probably wouldn’t have time anyway given all the attention you’re likely to get carrying this beauty round.
Missing as ever from the ‘reddot design award winner’ (I don’t know what it is either, but it was clearly made up of a panel with good taste) is a price and a shipping date. LG tends to keep its products on the right side of sane however and given that the T1 is up on its official products page now it looks like we won’t have to wait to long either…
