Reviews for the LG R590-T.ARR7A3
Source: Hardware Zone Archive.org version
At times, LG can be guilty for spending too much time and effort on form over function. Powered by a Core i7 processor and NVIDIA's GeForce GT335M GPU, the R590 is probably LG's most powerful notebook yet. The 15.6-inch laptop also features a 1600 x 900 pixels widescreen resolution and a Blu-ray combo drive. It is even 3D-ready with a polarized screen and comes with appropriate eye-wear.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 335M: The GeForce GT 335M offers 72 shader cores (compared to the 48 of the GT 330M) and is based on the GT215 core (GTS 350M).
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
The Core i7-820QM is a high-end quad core CPU for laptops that clocks due to the Turbo Mode from 1.73-3.06 GHz. Therefore, the processor combines the advantages of fast single core CPUs and slow quad-core CPUs. Hyperthreading allows the simultaneous use of 8 Threads in parallel.» 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.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
In former years, this weight was representative for laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal. Nowadays, 17 inch laptops weigh less than that.

80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
