The Ultra Battle: 7 Intel CULV Notebooks Fight it Out!

LG T380

While HP's all covered in shiny metal, LG went for something different with a rubbery look that may yet catch your attention for its unusual design. We must admit that LG has implemented it well and we quite like the overall look and feel. Inside, the LG T380 opens up to a silvery retro look, with a normal looking keyboard that feels great on actual usage with no detectable flex. The keyboard is the only physical interface you'll note on the interior while other functions like notebook power on/off and LG Smart ON feature rely on capacitive controls. This design didn't really translate well with the trackpad implementation as the button-less trackpad relied on haptic feedback technology to emulate clicking, thus giving you the 'buzzing' feedback that's rather out of place and not easy getting used to.
