Although we’ve already grown accustomed with hybrid devices bringing “the best” of the tablet and ultrabook worlds, we’re glad to welcome two new fellows to the table. LG’s Tab Book Z160 and H160 have seen daylight at CES 2013 in Vegas, but don’t have official ETAs or prices just yet.
The Z160 looks like the shiniest star of the duo, despite weighing a pretty hefty 2.3 pounds. This is an 11.6-inch Windows 8 tablet with a very slim and attractive slide-out keyboard that adds functionality to the entire package.
You can’t really call the Z160 an ultrabook considering its weight and 19.4 mm thickness, but on the flipside it does pack enough heat to take on any 11-incher around, be it ultrabook, tablet or mini-laptop. We don’t know the full spec sheet as of now, but we do know there’s an Intel Core i5 CPU under the hood, 8 GB of RAM and a 160 GB SSD.
As for the Tab Book H160, this is both lighter and thinner, but it’s definitely not worthy of being called high-end. That’s mostly due to the Intel Atom Z2760 Clover Trail chip inside, but also due to the 2 GB of RAM and 64 GB of on-board memory.
