Are netbooks evolving into ultrathin form factors right before our very eyes? It's too early to tell, but clearly there's a market for super thin notebooks, or so it would seem, given the attention manufacturers are putting into the segment . The latest is LG, whose ultrathin XNote LGX30 now appears in the FCC's database.
Not to be confused with the Ion-based X30, the XNote LGX30 is an 11.6-inch netbook sporting a 1366 x 768 resolution. It comes with an Intel Atom processor inside (no mention of which one), along with a solid state drive, Intel GMA 500 graphics, Bluetooth, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, and a built-in webcam. Windows 7 ties it all together, and though you can't see it very well from the pictures, the LGX30 does have a trackpad, which boasts support for multitouch gestures.
A 3-cell battery rounds out the package, bringing the total weight to just 1.74 pounds. No mention on when it will be released, but don't be surprised to see this one turn up at CES next month.
