LG Electronics is expanding its line-up of Windows PCs with a number of new products, including the 13Z940 Ultra PC laptop, which has a 13.3-inch full HD screen and weighs 980 grams.

The laptop along with the Tab-Book 2 family and an all-in-one PC will be on display at the International CES trade show in Las Vegas between Jan. 7 and 10.

The 13Z940 is powered by a Haswell-based Core i5 processor and has up to 256GB of SSD storage. The laptop is 13.6 millimeters at its thickest point and the screen has a 4.4 millimeter bezel. It also has what LG calls a reader mode, allowing users to "alter the background of any on-screen image to resemble paper, reducing eye-strain and energy consumption," the company said.

The two new Tab-Book 2 models have a slide-out QWERTY keyboard hidden under an 11.6-inch touchscreen. The 11T740 flagship model is also powered Core i5 Haswell processor. It has a full HD display and weighs 1.05 kilograms. The simpler 11T540 is a bit lighter at 930 grams, but it remains to be seen what LG has done to the hardware specification to get there.

The new all-in-one PC has a 27-inch full HD screen and a GeForce GT 740M graphics card from Nvidia. LG hopes consumers will use the unit as both a computer and a TV. Users can switch from computer to TV mode using the included remote without having to reboot the PC, according to LG.

LG didn't offer any details on the pricing or when the new products will become available, but that will likely be announced at CES. Other products LG has said it will show in Las Vegas include an all-in-one PC running Google's Chrome OS and a curved 105-inch 4K TV with a 21:9 aspect ratio, which makes it wider than traditional widescreen TVs.
