first US model last year. Less than twelve months later, though, the outfit's already revamping its design: the company just announced the LX815 and LX835, which will replace its current 21.5- and 23-inch offerings. Both models sport 1080p TN displays, and sport an overhauled chassis with matte surfaces and recessed ports. Spec-wise, expect "third-generation" Intel Core processors (read: Ivy Bridge), up to 3TB in HDD storage, a max of 16GB of RAM, dual USB 3.0 ports (plus four 2.0 sockets) and HDMI-in. At the high end, you'll also be able to scoop one up with a capacitive touchscreen. Look for these starting sometime in Q3 at which point the 21-incher will go for $600 while the 23-inch model will command northward of $880.
