LG X130 Netbook Boasts 9-Celled Battery, Supposed to Last 12 Hours

LG has recently announced their X130 netbook, which is pretty typical for a netbook (10.1″ screen with 1024×600 resolution, a 1.6 GHz Intel Atom N270 processor, 1 GB of RAM, and a 160 GB hard drive) except for its battery. Most netbooks 3- or 6-celled batteries, but the X130 has a 9-celled battery instead.

LG claims that this battery has a capacity that is 50% more than that of previous netbook models, and went as far as to quote that the battery can last up to 12 hours on a single charge.

Some other tech specs of this machine include Wi-Fi b/g/n, Bluetooth 2.0+EDR, and Windows XP Home. Unlike previous LG netbooks though, there is currently no sign of integrated 3G WWAN for this new netbook.

The LG X130 netbook will be available in Europe, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, and Africa, and boast a price tag of $632.
