LG reveals Windows 8 PC-hybrid lineup for Korea

LG does indeed make PCs in addition to smartphones. Today, the company revealed on its Korean language website plans to launch at least two PC products, an all-in-one and a notebook-tablet hybrid, made especially for Microsoft's Windows 8. Yes, the lovely lady in the picture seems to be showing three devices, but the press release mentions only two PCs; we assume the tablet in the picture is just one form of the tablet-notebook hybrid.

The 23 inch all-in-one PC, the V325, has a 10-point touch screen. It also has a TV tuner built in that can be used even if the PC portion of the device is turned off. It also has Intel's Core i5 processor inside, along with a NVIDIA GeForce GT640M graphics card.

LG will also release the H160 hybrid, which turns from a 11.6 inch tablet to a notebook by sliding the screen up, similar to the design for Sony's Vaio Duo 11 hybrid. LG claims the H160 will have a battery life of up to 10 hours.

At the moment, LG only has plans to release both of its Windows 8 PCs in Korea, alongside the Windows 8 launch on October 26th. It will also relaunch its previous PC Ultrabooks with Windows 8 pre-installed on that date.

That remote people are refering to looks like any standard LG tv or Blu-ray player remote, as I have both. They are fairly long as they both control either unit.

"The 23 inch all-in-one PC, the V325, has a 10-point touch screen."

Why? Is there a single person on Earth that isn't allergic to smudges on their PC display? Yet LG makes this a "feature," and it probably bumps up the price unnecessarily as well.

Maybe just a hunch, but I believe it is because Windows 8 is the only OS that supports 10-point touch.

I for one am thinking of writing a piano app for Windows to make use of those 10-point displays.

a) You're wrong and b) It has nothing to do with what I'm talking about anyway, I was arguing the point of touchscreen on a desktop AIO PC with a gigantic 23" screen which you won't exactly be able to use as a tablet, and I don't see anyone sane reaching out and smudging their desktop display.

When you refer to "10-point touch", is that the same thing as having a touchpad with touchpoints? As my Ultrabook has a 20-point touchpad, so will those features of Windows 8 be available for me?

I'm not going to lie, the one on the right and the one on the left are so good looking haha
But what's that huuuuuuge remote for?
