The LG X110 netbook may not be available in the US, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find one near the US. Canadian electronics retail Future Shop is selling the netbook for $480, or just under $400 US. Unfortunately it doesn’t look like the store ships to zip codes south of the border. But if you happen to be planning a trip to Canada, you might be able to pick one up in-store.
On the other hand, the LG X110 is a pretty average looking netbook that bears a more than passing resemblance to an MSi Wind U100. It’s got a 1.6GHz Intel Atom N270 CPU, a 10 inch, 1024 x 600 pixel display, 1GB of RAM, and a 160GB hard drive. This model comes with a 3 cell battery which is good for about 2 to 3 hours of use. In other words, there’s not much reason to choose this netbook over any number of similar mini-laptops that are available in the US. The main advantage the LG netbook has in Europe and the other places where it’s sold is that it’s available from some wireless broadband providers with a built-in 3G modem.
