Reviews for the LG E200
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.

These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.
Intel Pentium Dual Core: The return of the name Pentium, though it is a Yonah core. In fact, it is a double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption.
