Reviews for the LG S1

Gaming Notebook Roundup
Source: Inside HW English
Alongside the fingerprint reader, which is probably not too important to gamers, there are also several interesting extras. Even though the gaming is not exactly its field, the S1 is fantastic in multimedia. The most useful and most unusual gadget is definitely the small remote control, which can be placed in the ExpressCard slot while travelling. That way, it is always at hand, while also being protected from any damage.

LG S1 with Core 2 Duo Review
Source: English
If you are shopping in this range, you should put the S1 on your list. LG has made an almost perfect notebook in the S1. It is well constructed, offers terrific performance and looks extremely stylish. We don't have to wait until the next revision to see the cons listed below worked out: a bigger HDD and a battery are easy to add. And please LG drop the VGA port for a DVI (with a DVI to VGA adapter for the retro-grouches out there). And while I am sitting on Santa's lap, I would also create a SKU above this model with an HD-DVD drive. LG is frustratingly close to a perfect notebook, but it is close enough to the mark to put ahead of many notebooks in the same price range.
