Reviews for the LG S1
Source: Inside HW
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.

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.

ATI Mobility Radeon X1600: ATI Mobility Radeon X1600 is a middle class graphic card for notebooks of the X1000 series. Its performance can be compared with NVIDIA GeForce Go 7600.
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)
