LG has announced three new Windows 8.1 devices that are all set to be unveiled for the public at CES 2014. The press release from LG does not provide the technical specifications, pricing and availability details but teases us with some features that we can expect from its latest Ultra PC (Model 13Z940), second generation Tab-Book 2 hybrid devices (Models 11T740 and 11T540) and All-In-One PC (Model 27V740).
We start with the Ultra PC (Model 13Z940). This Ultrabook from LG runs Windows 8.1 on a Haswell Intel Core i5 processor and uses a 128GB or a 256GB Solid-State Drive for storage. It features a Full HD 13.3-inch IPS display which is complimented by 4.4mm thin bezels. For comfortable reading the Ultra PC has got a Reader Mode that allows the reader to change the background image to resemble paper. This not only reduces eye-strain but also manages to conserve the battery life. LG has kept its weight at 980 grams and given it a maximum thickness of 13.6mm.
Next we have the LG Tab-Book 2. There shall be two variants of the LG Tab-Book 2, namely 11T740 and 11T540. Both devices run Windows 8.1 on an 11.6inch display that supports 10-point multi-touch and they have QWERTY keyboard hidden under the screen that slide in and out with the press of a button. The 11T740 is the flagship model and it features an 11.6 inch Full HD IPS display which has got a maximum brightness of 400nit lumens. LG has not given out any details of the 11T540 except its weight and thickness figures and since LG describes it as the ‘little sister’ of the 11T740 we can safely assume that it has moderate specs and is priced lower than the 11T740.
Finally we shall take a look at LG’s All-In-One PC (Model 27V740). While we can’t find a press shot of the product (since LG has not provided one) the press release states that the 27-inch All-In-One PC features a Full HD IPS display and runs Windows 8.1 with the help of an unspecified an Intel Core CPU and NVIDIA GeForce GT 740M GPU. It can act like a regular TV with its bundled remote and you can use it as a TV and an internet browser simultaneously thanks to its picture-in-picture (PIP) mode.
