|LG XNote P220 (SE35K SE50K), 12.5", 1300gm|
The thin bezel on the LG P220 is going to attract a lot of people. 12.5" screen in a 11.6" frame is usable and stylish. At 21mm deep this sits just outside the target thickness for an Ultrabook.
The LG Xnote P220 launches firs in Korea with 2 variants. The 320GB HDD version and a 128 SSD version. It is unknown if the 320HDD comes with SSD cache to speed up boot time. If not, this isn't an Ultrabook. Certainly none of the marketing materials so far have mentioned the 'Ultrabook.'
