LG Xnote P210 Caught on Video Sporting “World’s Thinnest Bezel”

Despite other advances in notebook thinness, screen bezels don’t seem to have slimmed down at all in the past few years. If anything, we’re seeing more bulbous, glossy bezels now than ever. Enter LG’s new Xnote P210, a notebook that, according to its manufacturer, has such a small bezel that it fits a 12.5-inch LED-backlit panel into a chassis that would normally hold an 11.6-inch display. Is it the world’s thinnest? We can’t say for sure, but it is up there.

Unlike many other ultraportables, the Xnote comes fully loaded with a 1.33-GHz Core i5-470UM CPU, 4GB of RAM, and 5,400 rpm hard drive. Its 12.5-inch screen has the nearly-ubiquitous 1366 x 768 resolution. The 2.8-pound, 0.8-inch thick system will cost approximately $1,135 when it launches in Korea next month with no announced plans to bring it to the U.S.

We first reported on the Xnote P210 and 14-inch Xnote P420 last week, but today our friend Nicole Scott of Netbook News posted her video hands-on with the Xnote P210. In the clip below, she gets a quick look at the thin bezel, the overall build quality, and the responsiveness of the keyboard and touchpad. Check out Nicole’s article and the video to get a closer look at this remarkably light notebook.
