Are the current CULVs on the market just too thin for you? No? Well, that's what LG thinks a lot of people have been waiting for. A wider notebook. It makes a little sense; movies will look a lot more cinematic this way. Not coincidentally, that seems to be pretty much the entirety of LG's marketing campaign for these babies.

Check it, the WIDEBOOKS all come with 16:9 HD LED-backlit monitors and an Intel Core 2 Duo processor. The R580 and R560 both feature a 15.6" screen, while the R380 has a 13.3" screen. The R480 and R460 have 14" displays. The R580 has a Blu-ray drive. If you're buying a WIDEBOOK for a 'cinematic' experience, that's the one to get.

All of these WIDEBOOKS have either 2 or 4 GB of RAM, as well as Nvidia cards with as much as 1 GB of DDR2 video memory. The whole series is also equipped with 1.3" megapixel webcameras, as well as HDMI connectors. Price and U.S. release information have not been released yet, but it will be hitting the states fairly soon.
