LG Electronics Singapore today announced two new notebooks based on the new 45nm Hi-k Intel?Core? Duo mobile processor for Centrino � the E300 ultra-portable 13.3?notebook, and the R405 14.1?entertainment notebook featuring discrete Nvidia Geforce graphics. One of the first notebooks in Singapore to feature the new Intel?Core?2 Duo processor T8300, the E300 and R405 bring enhanced performance, usability and energy efficiency in stylish award-winning form factors.

The new Intel?Core?2 Duo processor T8300 benefits from enhancements to the Intel?Core?microarchitecture and also Intel’s industry-leading 45nm Hi-k process technology with its hafnium-based high-K + metal gate transistor design, which results in higher performance and more energy-efficient processors. 25% smaller than current generation processors, the new processor enables breakthrough performance and improved battery life, providing consumers with the ability to be more productive or just enjoy their digital entertainment while on the go.

Helping to extend battery life is also a new Intel Core microarchitecture design feature for advanced power management state called Deep Power Down Technology that reduces the power of the processor when it’s not running data or instructions to the laptop. Intel has also added new video and graphics capabilities with Intel?HD Boost that includes Intel?Streaming SIMD Extensions 4 (SSE4) for speeding up workloads including video encoding for high-definition and photo manipulation.

Aimed at fashion-forward consumers, the LG E300 is an ultra-portable and ultra-light widescreen 13.3-inch notebook that combines improved graphics and processing power in a trend-setting design. New imprint patterns and a high-gloss finish give cutting-edge style and a sturdy feel to the notebook. The integrated ATI Express 1250 with up to 896MB in shared graphics memory combines with the in-built HDMI interface to deliver uncompressed, crystal-clear video and audio to HDTVs or next-generation LCD monitors.

The new 14?LG R405 notebook brings next-generation computing and graphics power at unbeatable price-performance levels. Equipped with both Nvidia Geforce 8400GS discrete graphics and the new 45nm Hi-k Intel?Core? Duo mobile processor for Centrino, the LG R405 further adds Intel Turbo Memory for up to 2x faster performance for memory-intensive activities such as high-definition movies, games and more. The R405 also features BlueCore 4?(Bluetooth 2.0 + EDR) that delivers data rates of up to 3x faster than conventional Bluetooth devices � enabling users to print, navigate with a wireless mouse, and listen to music over-the-air at the same time without affecting performance or stability.

“We are proud to be one of the first in Singapore to introduce leading-edge notebooks based on Intel’s next-generation Intel?Core? Duo mobile processor for Centrino,?said Bae Jung, Managing Director for LG Electronics Singapore. “Being first to market, LG continues its leadership position in blending cutting-edge technology and design excellence to computing products at compelling price-performance levels.?lt;/p>

The LG E300 and LG R405 notebooks will be available from today at leading retail stores and computing outlets. The RCPs are available with the specifications below and both notebooks come with a one-year international warranty.
