LG reviews


Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

NVIDIA GeForce 8400M G: The 8400M G is a pared-down 8400M GS with only half as much Stream Processors and a smaller memory bus. Therefore, the performance is much lower and only as fast as the old 7400 card. Only MPEG-2 acceleration.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2400: This DirectX 10 graphic card from ATI is the direct competitor to the NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS graphic card for laptops. It features the Avivo HD video engine. The performance is not enaough for DX 10 games and high settings.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.

T7250: Mid-range (at the time of annoucement) dual core processor based on the Merom core.

T5750:

Entry level dual core processor based on the Merom core without Virtualization support and a low maximum temperature.


15.4: 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays. Nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.

2.7 kg:

This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

2.7 kg:


79%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
