LG reveals product roadmap for first half of 2014

LG's got a tonne of products coming to market this year - and it's just the start of things...

LG's rushing into the first half of the year with close to a new product coming to market each month for the first half of 2014. The company invited us for a look-see of its new gear and it's a solid range.

The product that seems most good to the Life's Good crew is LG's new ChromeBase all-in-one PC. Powered by Google's lightweight Chrome OS, the ChromeBase is designed to do its heavylifting in the cloud, but still feature some grunt in terms of hardware. With a Haswell-based Celeron processor, 2GB of RAM (which seems tiny these days, but is ample for Chrome), and 16GB of storage. 

For all that, LG wants a farely reasonable $599, and will be available in April. It's a neat unit, perfect as a secondary PC or media device, or as a lightweight desktop for businesses.

While the ChromeBase is light on the specs, the same can't be said of the impressively large 21:9 UltraWide QHD 34in monitor. It sounds a mouthful, and it looks like one, too - boasting an impressive 3440 x 1440 IPS display, LG's aiming this monitor at colour professionals. With a range of connectivity options including Thunderbolt 2, it's very versatile, and retailing for $1299, it's rather affordable for 4K.

Give us one with a 60hz refresh rate, and we are there.

Finally, LG's refreshing its Ultrabook range with the new UltraPC. This now comes with a 4th gen Core i5/i7 Haswell processor, and has gotten a display with a downright tiny bezel, and a choice of clamshell colours. The Misty Rose and Baby Blue options may not appeal, personally, but the Glam Metal iteration ain't bad. The i5 model retails for $1298 and the i7 for $1898. 

They're out this month, and are pretty elegant units to behold.

LG's also got a new range of battery rechargers coming, and a very impressive combination mouse/scanner in the mix. 

Life is, apparently, good.
