Today, LG unveiled its newest 15.6-inch Full-HD 3D LG A530 notebook (also known as Xnote A530 in South Korea) with dual-camera, which adds another dimension to 3D experience.
The LG A530 does not only offer 3D viewing (like most 3D notebooks), but also has the ability to shoot and share via its 3D dual webcam. The LG A530’s 3D dual webcam makes it simple to create dazzling 3D content, delivers an integrated 3D experience, alowing playback of 3D content from the notebook to other LG’s 3D devices, such as smartphones, TVs and monitors.
The LG A530 also lets users share 3D content with their friends and family. With LG’s 3D Space Software, users can easily access 3D video, photos, games and movies with even wider range of 3D options. Thanks to LG’s proprietary Film Patterned Retarder (FPR) technology (which produces brighter 3D images) users can watch 3D content on the LG A530 for extended periods without worrying about eyestrain or dizziness. The 3D LCD screen, with Full HD 1920×1080 resolution, keeps images brighter than on shutter glasses-type 3D notebooks, meaning richer, more vivid games, movies and pictures.
The LG A530 includes a free pair each of the lightweight 3D glasses and clip-ons, so 3D content can be watched in a complete comfort – straight away. In addition, the LG A530 features an SRS Wide 3D Sound for Superb audio experience. As well as its 3D functions, the LG A530 has a second-gen Intel Core i7 CPU with up to 8GB memory. The new processor delivers 60 percent faster speeds and double the power for playing HD media than the previous Intel Core i7 processor. In addition, the NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M graphics card boasts 20 percent better performance than NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M, for the ultimate experience in 3D games and movies.
A built-in solid-state drive (SSD) complements the LG A530’s HDD drive, so boot-up times are between 20 and 30 percent faster than on other notebooks. The notebook also has fingerprint reader for quick log-in and USB 3.0, which transfers data 10 times faster than USB 2.0.
The LG A530 comes in luxurious, modern exterior in a sturdy, Ebony Black case. Its metallic look has a solid brushed aluminum finish, while the touchpad’s edges have been rounded using real diamonds as the cutting element. A wider touchpad and pebble keyboard make the notebook’s interior more ergonomic and comfortable to use.
