Powered by Intel Sandy Bridge CPUs LG’s new S430 and S530 series Notebooks offer a beautifully glossy and vibrant chassis color with a Non-Conductive Vapor Metallization process that provides a crystalline metallic veneer finish making for a scratch-proof clamshell. The 14-inch S430 comes with a 1366 x 768 display resolution, while the 15-inch S530 ups the ante to 1600 x 900. Both machines offer Intel Core i5 CPUs with up to 8GB of RAM, 750GB Hard drives and Bluetooth 3.0 along with Wi-Fi 802.11n as one would expect.
Graphics processing is initially supplied by the Intel HD 3000 GPU while a discrete Radeon HD 6470M is an optional upgrade for those users needing to juice up their gaming frame rates. Other features include a HD Webcam, 7-in-1 memory card reader, USB 2.0 ports and a 6-cell battery. Both LG notebooks are due to launch initially in Africa, Asia and the Middle East in September with the US and Europe soon after. No pricing details have been announced just yet.
