It looks like the Japanese based manufacturer Mouse Computer are going for the ultrabook market in big style with the launch of yet another new slim and light laptop, that has all of the right qualities to be known as an ultrabook! This fourteen inch laptop is light at just 1.76 kilos and slim too at a mere 21 mm, but there is something else about the computer and that is it looks clean and well made. It may look nice, but performance is everything these days and that means underneath that shiny case to see what going on.
The LB-L400X ultrabook will have to live up this label and it seems to meet all of the requirements to carry the ultrabook tag. It does exactly that, because it comes with a medium sized fourteen inch wide screen LCD Gloss style display with the LED backlight feature, a 1366 × 768 of pixel resolutions and there is a built in 1.0 mega pixel web camera and mono microphone, which is just about all right for face to face meeting over the internet.
It will be running Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit operating system, powered by the Intel Core i5-3317U Processor with 2.60 GHz 3MB support smart cache HT maximum when 2 core, it will have support for the Intel HM77 Express chipset and its graphics will be coming through the Intel HD 4000 graphics card. There is a nice size 8 GB of PC3-12800 DDR3 SODIMM, a 500 GB SerialATAII 5400 rpm hard disk drive (HDD) and a 60 GB mSATA connection solid state drive (SSD) for dual storage.
Getting online should be no problem with the 1000 Base-T/100 Base-TX/10 BASE-T (RJ-45) Ethernet, Bluetooth V4.0 + LE and IEEE 802.11 b / g / n Wireless LAN available. While other features include the two standard USB 2.0 ports, a single super fast USB 3.0 port and the always handy Multi-Card Reader. The LB-L400X will measure up at 344 mm (W) × 240 mm (D) × 21 mm (H) and weigh just 1.76 kilos and that is with the lithium-ion battery pack installed that Mouse Computer say will be able to offer the user up to five hours of power.
Mouse Computer have already launched the LB-L400X ultrabook in Japan where they have placed a starting price of around $1,280 on it, this is not bad but you might feel that they will have to try a little harder in other more competitive markets.
