Another one of the pre-announcements that LG has become famous for doing ahead of the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, LG has said that it will be improving on both the Ultrabook and Tab-book computers it released last year with updates to each.
Both will run with Microsoft’s Windows 8.1, and offer 10 point touchscreens with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard underneath that no longer has raised borders like the original did.
Also on the update path for LG is the company’s first Ultrabook, which will too receive an update to Intel’s fourth-generation Core processors, taking advantage of a Core i5 with either 128GB or 256GB of solid-state storage.
The first LG Ultrabook we saw already had a Full HD 13.3 inch panel, and LG looks set to keep that, though the company has yet to confirm if the screen will be one supporting touch.
That was one of the areas we were quite critical over in the first edition of the laptop, and given that Intel’s fourth-gen chips support touchscreen technology, we’d be surprised if LG didn’t include it.
A quick glance at the images LG has supplied (above) to use suggest this change might have happened, with a line around the touchpad suggesting that a button could exist, although that could just be wishful thinking on our part.
Whatever it is, we hope to see it soon, with more about the computers coming with CES opens in just a few days, while Australians will likely see the new boxes within the next few months.
