The LG P300 comes as a compact notebook that surprises with its performance and features that are enough to take care of your daily computing, and all this as an ultraportable.
When it comes to slim laptops, the new P300 from LG surely is one of the ‘top few’. Complete with a glossy top and brushed aluminium finish keyboard, palm-rest and touchpad, this is a product that wants to take on the much hyped Mac Book Air.
The P300 has a 13.3-inch LED backlit LCD display, with a maximum resolution of 1280 x 720. It also sports a 2.1 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo processor, 4 GB of RAM, 250 GB HDD and NVIDIA GeForce 8400m GS graphics to top it up.
The bright 13.3 in display reproduces vibrant and colourful images and is quite visible in brightly light areas. The keyboard is well spaced, and both the keyboard and touchpad are quite responsive.
This laptop is capable of handling jobs that range from basic Internet browsing, to mid-level computing. The 4 GB RAM really comes in handy when viewing HD videos; plus if you want a bigger screen, the onboard HDMI port will let you hook this laptop up to any HDMI compatible device.
Despite being a compact notebook, the P300 has a plethora of ports. The only thing that was missing from it was a FireWire port. In its place, LG decided to include the “S-Link” port. To be honest, we’d prefer to have the flexibility of a FireWire port, over a dedicated port for synchronising files.
Even though there are so many plusses to this neat laptop, we would have preferred to have an internal optical drive rather than an external one.
Finally, to sum it all up, the LG P300 comes as a compact notebook that surprises with its performance and features that are enough to take care of your daily computing, and all this as an ultraportable.
