LG Tab-Book hands-on
Knowing that a third-gen Intel Core i5 processor is ticking inside the LG Tab-Book, we’re not surprised to see that its performance is top notch. When it isn’t being pushed too hard, the chip hums at 1.8GHz, but that figure can go up to 2.7GHz when additional power is needed. Furthermore, there’s a respectable 120GB SSD tucked inside and 4GB of DDR3 RAM for seamless multitasking.
With the LG Tab-Book you also get a 1.3MP front-facing camera, HDMI output, microSD card slot, and a pair of 0.5W built-in speakers. Getting connected to the internet is done either via its mini RJ45 port, or over Wi-Fi, or by using the device’s 4G LTE radio. Its internal battery should last through 6 hours of continuous use.
So in conclusion, with its specs and features, the LG Tab-Book isn’t meant to compete with the iPad or the multitude of Android slates, but it can be a very tempting alternative to an Ultrabook, depending in the final price it launches at.

Who would get a lg anything? everything from there tv to phones suck and its not me it's a fact there tv has almost a 40% failure rate the local big screen store won't even carry them.. If ur gonna spend ur hard earned money get something with some quality Sony and asus has the best computer hands down.
