Although they've been relatively mum about this product since it was unveiled at CES 2010, LG has some big release plans for the ultra-thin X300 laptop this month.

Starting in March, the LG X300 will first be available in Asia, followed by the Middle East and South America - although it's not clear when exactly it will drop in those regions. Specific dates and prices will also vary from country-to-country.

Developers were obviously as concerned with a sleek design as they were with installing premium specs. Some of the fine touches include a reflective keyboard, a border-less touchpad and availability in two colors ("shiny" white and light brown). LG also promises it will only be seen and not heard, as the X300 utilizes a "fan-less, silent" operation.

Considering that LG is touting this 0.69-inch thick laptop as their "flagship mobile computing device" for 2010, we should see a much wider release some time this year. But until a North American release date is announced, here's some of the specs to keep you entertained:

  • 11.6-inch LCD screen
  • Windows 7 Home Premium OS
  • 2.0 GHz Intel Menlow platform
  • Up to 2GB memory
  • 128GB SSD
  • Embedded 3G modem chipset (Supports GSM, GPRS, EDGE, UMTS and HSDPA networks)
  • 1.3-megapixel webcam
  • SRS TruSurround HD sound
