Reviews for the LG R500-UPRAG

LG R500 Review
Source: English
The LG R500 is the new top-of-the-line notebook in the R-series from LG Electronics. The notebook offers a solid foundation for performance thanks to Intel Core 2 Duo (Santa Rosa) processors, nVidia GeForce 8600m GS dedicated graphics and plenty of RAM and HDD storage space. Although LG officially advertises the R500 as a "business notebook" the R500 is also perfectly capable of serving as a full-featured consumer notebook or budget gaming notebook. Unfortunately for our readers in the US, the LG R500 only available outside the US at this time ... starting at about $1,899 in Canada or 1,499 euros. The overall construction of the R500 is plastic but the notebook is remarkably solid and suffers from little or no flex even when significant force is applied.

NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS: NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GS is the DirectX 10 capable successor of the GeForce Go 7600 / 7700 for laptops and technically a higher clocked 8400M GT. The performance is slightly above the 7600 / 7700 and, therefore, it can represent DirectX9 games fluently. For DirectX 10 effects, the power of the card is not sufficient.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

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.

T7300: Mid-range (at the time of annoucement) dual core processor based on the Merom core. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15-16 inch is a standard display size for laptops and offers the biggest variety of products.
