    Is it even possible to update the HD to 2.5"? I thought it had a 1.8" slot, but maybe I'm thinking of the T1?

    Okay, I re-read my warranty card and the Canadian warranty is NOT international. Sorry for the confusion.

    I believe you're thinking about the T1. No way you could upgrade that. But, what more can you ask of a 14 inch laptop that's less than an inch thick.

    I have the LG P1, and here are my thoughts.

    1. The feel is plasticky, it feels better than the Acers I've come in contact with (and owned) - Similar to the Sony's with the reinforced carbon plastic. Hard, very slight flexibility.

    2. I have no issues with the external casing, no loose or misaligned joints and no pressure flexing at the speaker ports nor at the express card slot. Slight rippling on the screen when a fair amount of pressure is applied to the lid.

    3. The screen while only 1200*800 is perfect, very bright, no flaws or ghosting. Offers a clarity better than similar Acer, Asus and HP screens.

    4. Keypad, somewhat compressed keypad to allow for the addition of the number pad takes some getting used to. The keys themselves offer little complaint. Samsung keyboards are better, but this is above par as far as I've seen.

    5. My 3d mark 05 scores without overclocking and without a clean bloat free install came in at just under 3900, 3876 I believe - I'll edit when I get a clean install.

    6. In terms of cooling the P1 runs cooler than both a Toshiba with a 6600 go and an acer with a x1400, I can confirm that I do indeed hear a fan running (only after running intense games for an extended period/2-3 hrs) and then it is barely audible.

    7. The included laptop speaker sound is slightly tinny with little to no base (as is to be expected) but when run through a 5.1 system (or headphones for that matter) the SRS feature is pretty nifty, impressive actually.

    8. Oblivion auto configures to high settings on this machine, I've adjusted the settings only to default to HDR lighting (and screen resolution to 1200*800 of course) and thus far have experienced a highly enjoyable game with little to no problems. (hovering at an average +/- 30 FPS)

    9. I use this machine primarily to encode video while I am travelling and have had zero to no problems with any of the encoders/transcoders I am using. In fact its very fast. (I'll edit in some times when I have time to compare).

    Just my impressions/opinions

    for reference:
    I also own a Toshiba M40 -(PSM40C) w/6600 go (My older one)
    in addition to an Acer Aspire 5672WLMI w/x1400 (Wifes)
    as well as this P1. (and a x2-3800 desktop)

    There was an IT and Computer Exhebition in Istanbul,Turkey yesterday (14.05.06) and I have seen LG has achieved something with their latest notebook series. Sorry for pics quality,I have used a Nokia 7710 mobile phone.

    This is LG P1 (1,83 dual core T2400,1GB DDR667 MHZ,Ati 1400,80 GB 5400 rpm,Bluetooth,Finger Print(also sound,volume,stop and play finger print),Super Multi DVD +-, SRS Sound (24bit),15,4" finebright screen (superb), probably hard plastic and sexy looking case)

    My LG P1 Points;

    Screen 8/10 - sharp,crisp,good viewing angles and brightness. I dont give much attention,importance to WXGA or WSXGA screens. But what I see in this notebook,its screen quality,bright is better than HP Pavillion' DV5000+DV8000 series, Toshiba's Trubrite screens, Acer's Crystal Brite screens, it looks like in same category like Sony's,Qosmio's,Packard Bells...LG's new notebook screens achieved something that are very different than former LG LW-LS series.


    Chasis Build Quality 7/10 - over average quality, and feels like hard plastic, looking very elegant and professional
    Keyboard Quality 8/10 - Numped, very good keys
    Performance for Price Value 8/10 -
    Heat 9/10 - very very cool
    Noise 9/10 - no noise...I very much tried to hear something...But nothing.
    Batterylife 9/10 - 3:40 hours...Great
    Overall Appeal 8/10 - I really respect LG after seeing that notebook. It will be very clever and good bargain to buy a new LG P1 or Piano black red dot awarded S1 series notebook.



    regards,
    CDTRF
