Reviews for the LG E200

LG E200 User Review
Source: Notebookreview.com English
The LG E200 is a 12.1” widescreen notebook recently released by LG.  The E200 is marketed as an entry level ultraportable notebook using the less powerful Pentium Dual-Core processor and ATI RS600ME chipset.  As an entry level notebook it retails at most computer stores in Canada for about $1,000 CAD.
The E200 has a simple uniform design, there is a checkering pattern through its black cover (it is also available with a pink cover) and is silver on the inside.  The top has a nice iPod Nano glossy look to it, and unfortunately like the iPod Nano it is prone to scratches.  It has a latchless lid which carefully shuts without too much force. The build is nice and sturdy, but not as solid as a laptop from the ThinkPad series.  The laptop itself is a bit thick for a 12.1” laptop, but this allows for it to take more punishment than a thinner one would.  You can choose whether you want to make it lighter by inserting a plastic travel weight instead of having the DVD drive in -- making it 0.2Kg lighter.

12.1": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Most netbooks have a tinier display. The advantage is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2 kg: These sub-notebooks weight less than the average of all notebooks, but represent a heavier class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 12 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
