LG unveils netbook PC with embedded 3G at IFA

LG Electronics will launch in October a netbook-class laptop PC based on Intel's Atom processor that also includes 3G wireless, it said Wednesday at the IFA show in Berlin.

The X110 will include an HSPA (High-Speed Packet Access) cellular data modem that should be compatible with the newer 3G (third-generation) networks now being rolled out by most major carriers around the world. HSPA is typically capable of download speeds of several megabits per second and the latest versions of the evolving technology also offer megabit per second uploads.

In addition to 3G, the machine also supports 802.11b/g wireless LAN and has a wired Ethernet connector.

The X110 is based around the same 1.6GHz Atom processor that many of its competing devices also use and has a 10-inch WSVGA resolution (1,024 pixels by 600 pixels) screen that, if it wasn't for the 3G, would place it very close to competing netbook PCs.

LG has decided to go for a conventional hard-disk drive in the X110 and will offer models with either 80G bytes or 120G bytes of capacity. Some netbooks use faster solid-state disks based on flash memory chips but they typically offer much lower capacity.

It runs the Windows XP Home operating system.

The machine will be available in several colors including white, pink or silver. LG didn't announce the price.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
