 global leader and technology innovator in consumer electronics, introduced
 a new series of notebook computers that take full advantage of the Windows

     Windows SideShow is a new technology that allows the Windows Vista
 operating system to drive auxiliary displays providing consumers with
 faster and easier to use bite-size bits of information. NVIDIA Preface
 allows consumers to link to the programs and data stored on the main
 system, even when the notebook is in hibernation mode or turned off. Some
 of the many gadgets that can be used on the go without draining battery
 life include music playback, photo slideshows, e-mail, calendars, world
 clocks, stock quotes, RSS feeds, and more.
     "In the consumer electronics market, the line between work and
 entertainment devices has become increasingly blurred," said John Milner,
 general manager of personal media processors at NVIDIA Corporation. "The LG
 Z1 with NVIDIA Preface technology allows consumers to get more from the
 notebook experience -- they can be more productive throughout their workday
 and enjoy personal media along the way."
     "NVIDIA Preface technology and Windows SideShow allow us to offer our
 customers a new way to take advantage of the wealth of personal information
 in their notebook and on the Web," said Mr. JJ Lee, general manager for the
 PC division of LG. "For those looking to enjoy a complete Windows Vista
 experience, this notebook is a must-have."
