Reviews for the LG P1
Source: Inside HW
LG P1 Pro Express Dual has somewhat rounder bezels of the silvery lid, while the keyboard is basically the same as with the S1 model. The small “Enter” key is compensated by the additional “Enter” on the numerical part, located in the lower right corner. Thanks to this position, it won't be long before you get used to using this one instead of the usual one. The screen is somewhat worse than the one found on the S1.

The LG P1 “Express Dual” is a 15.4-inch widescreen multimedia laptop series based on the Centrino Duo technology. The P1 could be called the poor man’s S1, offering new technology for a much cheaper price than LG’s 15.4” flagship. I’m mainly very satisfied with the laptop as it has only a few minor downsides, which you can easily live with. Clever and handy solutions combined with fairly good build quality and performance makes this computer rather attractive in its price class. I highly recommend the P1 to anyone searching for a cheap quality notebook with a 15.4” screen.

ATI Mobility Radeon X1400: ATI Mobility Radeon X1400 is part of the lower middle class. The performance can be compared with an elder X600, but technically it is a X1300, which is scarcely 100 Mhz higher clocked.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
Intel Core Duo: Double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption. The 2 MB L2 Cache are used together by the double. The maximum capacity of 31 watts is only 4 watts more than with the Pentium M (predecessor). Both cores are lowered automatically and independently of each other by speed steps down to 1 GHz. In addition it now supports also SSE3 instructions. At least it is just as fast as a equivalent Pentium M. With applications, which were designed for multi-processors, the performance can be nearly twice as fast as with the Pentium M (e.g. CineBench around 86% fast)
