LG plotting autumn offensive against Eee PC?

X110 to integrate HSDPA

High performance access to file storage

LG has a history of producing some pretty small laptops - most notably the skinny 12in Z1 - but it's yet to take on tinies like Asus' Eee PC and Acer's Aspire One. It soon will, though.

According to a report by German-language site Notebook Journal, LG will be coming out with the mini machine, to be dubbed the X110, in October.

Full specs are not yet known, but it's said the laptop will sport a 9in display, Intel Atom processor, a 120GB hard drive and 2GB of memory.

There'll be one model with integrated HSDPA, one without, priced at, respectively, €499 ($788/£395) and €399 ($630/£316).
