Earlier today we told you all about the LG Z330 specifications, as promised we also have details regarding its big brother, this is the LG Z430 and perhaps the most noticeable difference is the fact that the Z430 boasts a display with a 14-inch diagonal compared to the Z330’s 13.3-inch display – but if you take a closer look at this ‘Super Ultrabook’ there’s more reasons why you should buy this model over the Z330.
As was the case with the Z330 we don’t have information regarding the Z430’s price, also there are lots of options available so pricing will vary massively depending on the configuration you choose – we hope to find out more next week at CES 2012.
The Z430 will be available with the choice between 2nd-gen Intel Core i5 and i7 processors, it will support up to 8GB of DDR3 and boast Intel HD 3000 graphics, in terms of its display this model features a 14-inch LED LCD which is just 4.5mm thick and like the Z330 it boasts a slim bezel and outputs at 1366 x 768. In terms of storage the spec sheet we got a glimpse of was a tad confusing, it looks like there will be SSD options from 16GB to 256GB and HDD options of up to 500GB, whether there will be bays for two drives is unclear. You will also have Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit and Windows 7 Professional 64-bit to choose from and Office 2010 Starter, plenty of LG applications and a 90 Day Trial Norton Antivirus 2011.
Other specs worth mentioning include 10/100 Ethernet, WiFi b/g/n, Bluetooth 3.0 + HS, a 4-in-1 card reader, a 1.3 megapixel HD webcam, a 4 cell Li-Polymer battery, 1 x USB 3.0 port, 2 x USB 2.0 port, an internal microphone, HD Audio, HDMI-out and HP Out — we still don’t quite know what HP-Out is.
In terms of design it features the same brushed metal finish as the Z330, however the display results in it measuring in at 329.4 x 226 x 19.9mm and weighs 1.5kg — that’s all we know for now, therefore we will have to tell you more when LG reveal the Z430 at CES 2012.
