LG Ultra PC — Lighter for More Mobility
The LG Ultra PC model 13Z940 weighs less than 1kg and sports a clean, minimalist de-sign. LG’s streamlined model offers improved processing, excellent graphics performance and extended battery life thanks to the Haswell Intel Core™ i5 processor. The LG Ultra PC also provides instantaneous booting with its solid-state drive (128GB or 256GB) for quick access and greater user convenience.
The 13Z940 Ultra PC has a Full HD 13.3-inch IPS display that incorporates the company’s Super Narrow Bezel design for an industry-leading 4.4mm thin bezels. The LG Ultra PC measures only 13.6mm at its thickest point and weighs in at a very travel-friendly 980g. The Ultra PC features Reader Mode, allowing the user to alter the background of any onscreen image to resemble paper, reducing eye-strain and energy consumption.
LG Tab-Book 2 — Redefining Convenience On the Go
The latest Tab-Book 2 models build on the success of LG’s original Tab-Book, which made its first appearance at CES 2013. Running Windows 8.1, both new models in the Tab-Book series are optimized for 10-point touch control and offer slide-out QWERTY keyboards hidden under the 11.6-inch touchscreen. With a press of a button on the side of the unit, the keyboard glides smoothly out from beneath the display for immediate action.
The flagship model 11T740 Tab-Book 2 is only 16.7mm thin, making it a superb solution for consumers wanting greater portability without sacrificing features. Tipping the scales at a just 1.05kg, this unique device incorporates an 11.6-inch Full HD IPS display for a maximum brightness of 400nit lumens for easy viewing outdoors. Perfectly suitable for both on-the-go entertainment and work, the model 11T740 Tab-Book 2 implements a fourth generation Intel Core™ i5 processor to deliver outstanding performance and a seamless user experience. Model 11T740’s little sister, model 11T540 Tab-Book 2, is even lighter at only 930g with a thickness of just 13.7mm.
LG AIO PC — Desktop Power and Convenience for Multimedia Fun
The LG 27-inch AIO PC has a crystal clear Full HD IPS display and runs the Windows 8.1 operating system. Perfectly at home as a TV, monitor or personal computer, the LG AIO PC can easily switch from computer to TV mode using the included remote without having to reboot the PC. For computing and graphics processing power, the new model contains an Intel Core™ CPU and NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M graphics card. What’s more, its picture-in-picture (PIP) feature makes it possible to watch TV and browse the internet simultaneously.
