LG U560 ultrabook, MacBook clone claims inaccurate

It was Apple that begun the craze of an ultra-thin laptop with their MacBook Air in 2008 and since then there has been a number of ultraboooks that wanted to take on that device. Over the years there have been some pretty impressive ones, and the latest is the LG U560 15-inch ultrabook. However, looking at the image below some consumers might say that this is more like a MacBook clone running Windows 8.

Okay, so we know that anytime we see a thin laptop made from metal rather than cheap and nasty plastic they will always be compared to a MacBook, but we’d rather that than the alternative, yet another plain looking ultrabook made from black plastic. However, those claims that the U560 looks like a MacBook are inaccurate, this is because it also looks a lot like other ultrabooks on the market, as well as the fact that the bottom is made from plastic.

While the video below is hard to understand because it’s in Korean, you can get an idea of how good the LG U560 ultrabook actually looks. As we said above you get a 15.6-inch display and we’re also told that there will be a not too shabby Intel Core i5 1.8GHz processor and SSD (although we are not certain as to its capacity) and also dedicated graphics.

The release of the U560 ultrabook will only be in South Korea at first, but we’re sure that LG will make it available to other countries in the not too distant future. We do worry that the lack of touchscreen (which we know Windows 8 was designed for) could be a bit of an issue for other markets, but would you agree?
