The LG120 is one of LG’s newest netbooks, building on their successful X110 netbook. We have previously written about the X120 when it was announced at CES earlier this year.
Some time has now passed by and you can now order you very own LG 120 for $450. The X120 features a 10.1-inch LED backlit LCD display with a 1024 x 576 pixel resolution, a 160GB HDD, and a 3-cell battery as standard, with a 6-cell version also available.
The LG X120 has a great design, and a high quality, sturdy build, with a well sized keyboard and spacious touchpad. A great feature of the LG X120 is it’s Splashtop based Smart-On interface, which has it’s own dedicated power button, and loads in only a few seconds. This gives you asses to a few common basic applications, such as email, photo browser, instant messaging and web browser.
The X120 also runs Windows XP as it’s main full operating system. Engadget reviewed the LG X120 netbook and said, in the end, while the X120 doesn’t have any one feature that immediately pushes it ahead of the pack, it also doesn’t have any clear disqualifying attributes — which, when it comes to netbooks, is actually saying something. It’s not the cheapest netbook around, but those looking for something that brings a bit more to the table than the same basic specs likely won’t find themselves disappointed.
