LG Z430 Ultrabook Price in Singapore, Features, and Other Info

LG Z430 Ultrabook Price in Singapore, Features, and Other Info: The world is currently experiencing an upsurge in Ultrabooks. These lightweight and super thin gizmos work just as fast (some even faster) than your ordinary, bulky laptops. One of the major reasons for its great popularity is that they look great. They are all sleek and shiny – very eye-catching. They are also Intel’s answer to the MacBook Air. In this article, we will be talking about one of the latest Ultrabooks to be released into the market, the LG Z430. This gadget proudly sashayed its way during the CES 2012 making all the other Ultrabooks go “Oooh!” It isn’t just an Ultrabook, it’s a Super Ultrabook.

One of the first things that you would notice with the LG Z430 is how slim it is. It has a cool 19.9mm chassis with a sleek metallic cover in gyro-brush finish. But do not let its pretty exterior fool you. This baby has enough power to put your regular laptop to shame. As mentioned earlier, they are released under the Super Ultrabook line since the manufacturers deemed that they have exceeded the requirements of your regular Ultrabook. Actually, there are 2 of them released this year, the Z430 and the Z330. The Z330 is the “little brother” of the Z430, it being only with 13.3 inches display, as compared to the Z430’s 14-inch.

Behind the beautiful facade of the LG Z430 lies a powerful processor. It will be boasting the latest Core i7 processor and a Windows 7 OS (for the moment) together with a SATA3 SSD and an HDD. We are talking of storage drives that could go up to 500GB! Manufacturers from LG have stated that it only takes 10-12 seconds for this thing to boot. The keyboard feels as great as it looks. The touchpad is just as pretty, almost blending in perfectly with the chassis, but it is a bit too slippery.

You may have noticed that the LG Z430 is carrying around a bit of heft with its 1.5 kg weight. That is largely due to the numerous ports that would give you the kind of convenience that most Ultrabooks do not have. The LG Z430 has an Ethernet port, a USB 3.0 port, two USB 2.0 ports, an HDMI port and a card reader. The weird thing though is that the card reader is located at the back. You also get Bluetooth 3.0+HS and Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n connectivity.

Despite its amazing features, there are a few disappointments that I’d like to point out with the LG Z430. The 14-inch screen only offers 1366×768 pixels, unlike those of its competitors like the HP Envy Spectre that has 16000×900-pixel screen resolution. Though the boot up time is a bit longer than its competitors, we can reason that out with the presence of the HDD, so that’s OK. A few seconds is not a big deal when we’re talking about extra space. But then, it only gives you 6 hours of battery life, so there.

LG is not well known for its prowess in the PC field, but it has done wonders with this series of Ultrabooks, or Super Ultrabooks as they would like to call it. You cannot deny that the machine is truly well made and the design superb. Though an official price has not been released yet, we are expecting the LG Z430 to be in the somewhat higher-end of the scale. We hope LG does not make it too expensive though. There are other Ultrabooks in the CES 2012 that are priced mid-ranged and have even better features than the LG Z430.
