But while I was just as impressed by just how compact these laptops were the second time I saw them, I was a bit underwhelmed to see they still had last year’s hardware.
Now that’s changing. LG has announced that it’s updating the LG Ultra PC lineup to feature 5th-gen, Intel Core “Broadwell” chips.
The new 14 inch LG Ultra 14Z950 measures 13.4mm (about half an inch) thick and weighs less than 2.2 pounds.
LG also has a 13.3 inch model called the 13Z940 which is also just under 2.2 pounds.
Both models feature full HD displays, around 10 hours of battery life, and 5th-gen Intel Core processors.
Unfortunately there’s still no word on if or when the laptops will be available in the US. For now LG says it will be launching the latest Ultra PC laptops in South Korea and select markets in South America.
Here’s my latest hands-on video with last year’s models which feature 4th-gen Core “Haswell” chips:
