Reviews for the LG S1-MDGAG
This is a premium notebook, no question about it. I think it easily justifies its cost especially when stacked up against two of its closest competitors: Acer's TravelMate 8205 WLMi and the MacBook Pro. In this league the S1 looks pretty good. The choice comes down to the LG S1 or the 8205 WLMi because of the large premium you have to pay for the MacBook Pro. I would take the LG. In my limited experience with the Acer TravelMate 8204 (one notch below the model listed above) I found its chassis to be subject to flexing and creaking. LG's S1 is built out of materials that are much nicer than the Acer (other than the carbon lid on the Acer).
