LG have indeed launched a new laptop.
It is - according to the press release - "a high-performance 14.1” widescreen R400 laptop with enhanced entertainment features in South Africa."
The R400 features Intel® Core™2 Duo T5600 (1.83GHz, L2 cache 2MB), CPU, a 160GB HDD capacity, and 2GB Memory, delivering an ultra powerful performance.
The R400 is equipped with ATI’s latest graphics chip ATI Mobility Radeon X2300, and it
supports 128MB dedicated video memory, offering up to 1)896MB graphic memory when ATI HyperMemory™ is enabled. This allows optimal playing of the latest games.
Enhanced Entertainment Features
LG R400 has a 1.3 mega pixel high-resolution webcam, as well as useful features for video chatting or video shooting. LG R400 also boasts a 5-in-1 multimedia card slot and DVD Super Multi, making it compatible with diverse storage media. And the S-Video out jack on the notebook lets the user view the computer display on a television screen using a standard S-Video cable.
The Latest Wireless Technology
The reason for the R400’s highly sensitive internet signal reception is that it has adopted the company’s proprietary technology, a dual-hexa band antenna, of segmenting frequencies into six kinds and catching the optimised frequency. Also, the LG R400 supports Bluetooth v2.0+EDR, which is up to three times faster than Bluetooth v1.2, making it ideal for transmitting sounds and videos requiring a high data transfer rate.
