LG has announced its X130 netbook which was last seen paying visit to the FCC officials. The new netbook has got a textured display lid, three different colors to choose from, chrome plated hinge giving an impression of a seamless hinge and a widened Shift key.
On the specifications front, the netbook is not different from its predecessors as it still houses a 10.1-inch display with WSVGA resolution (1024×600), 1.6GHz Atom processor, 1GB RAM, 160GB HDD, Wi-Fi 802.11n, Ethernet, Bluetooth 2, Windows XP Home, Smart-On Instant OS and 9-cell battery which gives around 12 hours of runtime.
It will be sold in South Korea for 789,000 Won ($638) and will be introduced soon in 30 other countries.

I purchased LG X130 Note BOOk from MAF hypermarkerts, QATAR WLL Villaggio Branch ( CARREFOUR) VIDE tranction No 27902101155178 dated 01 Dec 2009. I was told that the stand by time of its 9 cell battery will be 12 hours. this factor lured me to buy this laptop. now when i started using it with full battery charging I found its battery stand by time is only 6 hrs only and not 12 hours as had been quoted bt the seller as well the specifications posted in ur web site above. let it be clarified to the customers/users. this misleading quoting. hope to hear back immediately as i have to carry this laptop to india where i am likely to go next month or so’
let some one please confirm as to wether the present 6 cell battery can be interchanged with 9 cell battery pack in the same removable slot. if so then at what cost and souce of availabilty.thanks i approached LG CUSTOMER CARE BUT OF OF NO USE THEY TOLD ME THAT MY COMPLAINT HAS BEEN FORWARDED TO HOGHER MANAGEMENT AND I WILL HEAR FROM THEM SHORTY BUT IT IS MORE THAN A MONTH NO ONE BOTHERED.
