LG WIDEBOOK Laptop Line Loves Dem Capital Letters

 LG WIDEBOOK Laptop Line Loves Dem Capital LettersWhat’s up with companies insisting that their product names be written with all capital letters? We saw it happen with the MOTORAZR. We saw it again with the PLAYSTATION 3. And now we’re seeing it again with the announcement of hte new LG WIDEBOOK line of laptops.

If you’re expecting something absolutely groundbreaking to justify the extra need for the Caps Lock on your keyboard, you may find yourself a little disappointed. The LG WIDEBOOK takes on the 16:9 “cinematic” aspect ratio, but that seems to be par for the course for so many of these multimedia notebooks these days.

There are going to be five models in all as part of the WIDEBOOK series and all of them will get that 16:9 aspect ratio and LED-backlit displays. The smallest of the bunch is the 13-inch R380. Hitting up the middle are the 14-inch R460 and the 15.6-inch R560. And then there are higher-end options in the 14-inch R480 and 15.6-inch R580.

Features are set to include Windows Vista (or Windows 7), Core 2 Duo processors, between 2GB and 4GB of RAM, NVIDIA GeForce graphics chips (up to 1GB), and screen resolutions as high as 1600 x 900 pixels. The R580 gets Blu-ray too.

The initial launch is being scheduled for this month, releasing the first batch of LG WIDEBOOK notebooks to Turky, Dubai and Saudi Arabia. Other countries in Europe, Latin America, and North America follow shortly thereafter. No word on price.

    And for the record, LG stands for Lucky-Goldstar, the two companies that merged to form modern-day LG Electronics.

    Using all caps for LG makes sense. Using all caps for WIDEBOOK does not.
