LG unveils new Xnote Ultralight CULV notebook, then accident

The sexy little laptop you see above is South Korean manufacturer LGís latest tantalizing notebook on offer: the XNote Ultralight. It looks gorgeous.
What weíre looking at is an 11.6-inch ultraportable, running on a CULV battery but with the upgrade to go full Core2 Duo available. Otherwise, it ships with 2GB of RAM, a 320GB or 500GB hard drive, a couple of USB 2.0 ports and 802.11-n WiFi connectivity. The LG Xnote Ultralight starts around $1000 USD, but itís Korea-only right now, so if youíre interested in this Windows 7 based machine, youíll need to import for the time being.
Itís not exactly a laptop Iím tempted to buy, but I do find it an attractively designed machine. Unfortunately, the specs and the price make this not particularly competitive with most netbooks which cost half as much.
In other LG news, the Korean manufacturers accidentally leaked a Google Docs spreadsheet explaining their display plans for the year. The displays they showcased at CES are coming out next month, along with their new 3D-line up compatible with 3D Blu-Ray in May.
LG is also looking to roll-out their Skype-capable HDTVs, as well as their own webcam accessory in the coming months. The spreadsheet also references the forthcoming 47-inch LEX8 and LEX9 models, which are only a quarter of an inch thick.
Itís not earth shaking news, surely, but LG does great work on their HDTV line-up, and with semi-official word that new models are coming, thatís reason enough to consider delaying your next television purchase accordinglyÖ especially if you have visions of a 3D Avatar home theater experience in your future.
