LG Electronics is expanding into Saudi Arabia’s notebook market with the launch of its Centrino-equipped LM and LS series. LG believes the new LM50 and LS50 notebooks will strike a chord with increasingly internet savvy Saudi customers. “LG is already number one in Saudi Arabia for computer monitor sales, and this latest product launch will reinforce LG’s position in the important IT sector in the Kingdom. The LM notebook is a highly competitive package, with the latest features, clever design and it is attractively priced,” said C.K Cho, general manager of LG Electronics Saudi Arabia. The LM50 and LS50 claims to have the longest battery life of 10 hours and the slimmest design with a 15-inch screen. The LM Series uses LG’s proprietary ‘Battery Maximising’ technology to get the most out of the battery by suspending power to unused devices. The two-tone black and silver design notebook is equipped with an integrated Intel Pentium M Processor, the latest Intel 855 PM/GM chipset and an Intel Pro/Wireless LAN card. Intel Centrino mobile technology provides wireless computing while a high performance Quad Band Antenna ensures a wide range of reception bands for wireless communication. A silent cooling system, which means the LM notebook can be happily operated on a person’s lap for long periods, is another distinctive feature, along with the product’s magnesium and carbon fibre body – ultra-light construction used in the aerospace industry for its heat resistance, durability and strength. The LM Series’ large screen is more than a third brighter than conventional LCDs and boasts ATI graphic accelerator technology to deliver the highest quality and fastest 3D graphics. It is also connectable with home AV equipment, TV and projector, and its IEEE 1394 port allows for the transfer of high-quality digital video. Jamal Al-Jassim Electronics, the exclusive distributor for LG IT products in Saudi Arabia, will sell the notebook range. The SD memory card slot is a handy device for direct downloading and uploading with PDAs, digital camcorders and cameras, and MP3s. The LM Series also has three USB ports for high-speed data transmission, a printer port, and an IrDA port for infrared communication.
