In the never ending quest to capitalize on the book metaphor, we bring you the WIDEBOOK from LG. It's wide see, 16:9 wide for what LG calls a cinematic experience. Oh, just you never mind that cinematic typically refers to 21:9 -- this is marketing-speak, not science. Anywho, the five new models are LED backlit with Intel Core 2 Duo procs and include the 15.6-inch R580/R560, 14-inch R480/R460, and affordable 13-inch R380 that boasts a "Smart On" feature for five-second boots. The R580 (with Blu-ray) and R480 are premium models while the R560 and R460 lay claim to the "workhorse" moniker. The laptops come in either 1600x900 or 1368x768 pixel resolutions with up to 4GB of DDR2 memory and 500GB of disk, 802.11n and HSDPA data, e-SATA and HDMI interfaces, 1.3 megapixel cams, and 1GB of NVIDIA GeForce graphics. Expect to see 'em make the jump to the global stage throughout September. Until then we've got pics, lots of pics, and the full specs from the press release below.
