LG ships multimedia sub-notebook

Tiny TX Express strikes a chord

Boost IT visibility and business value

We like sub-notebooks here at Reg Hardware, and LG's 2.3cm-thick, 1.1kg Xnote TX - it's called the TX Express outside Korea - quite caught our eye. It may not be based on the latest Core Duo processor, but it still packs in some impressive features in its compact casing.

LG says the TX is based on an ultra-low voltage Pentium M 753 clocked to 1.2GHz. It's got a 400MHz frontside bus speed, but there's 1GB of 533MHz DDR 2 memory on board. The 12.1in, 1280 x 800 display is driven by an Nvidia GeForce 7300 with 64MB of graphics RAM, though its TurboCache supports allows it to take up to 172MB of main memory too.

On the audio side, the TX has Intel's HD Audio backed with SRS' WOW and TruSurround XT technologies. There's a drop-sensor protected 60GB 4,200rpm hard drive on board but no optical unit - the bundled dual-layer DVD writer connects to one of the notebook's three USB 2.0 ports. It has a five-in-one memory card reader, microphone and headphone sockets, and an external monitor port (VGA).

Connectivity comes courtesy of integrated 802.11a/b/g Wi-Fi, 10/100Mbps Ethernet and a 56Kbps modem. Bluetooth 2.0's on board too.

Alas the Xnote TX/TX Express isn't available in the UK or the USA. Only Asian buyers are offered this compact marvel, it seems. ®
