LG’s Xnote P510-UP98K is the top-of-the-line P510 series notebook PC. The P510-UP98K packs a 15.4″ TFT LCD with a pixel format of 1440 x 900. Not quite the highest-end in terms of the number of pixels (that would be 1920 x 1200 and then 1680 x 1050) but the display is driven by NVIDIA’s latest GeForce GT130M GPU with 512MB.
In comparison, Dell’s Precision M4400 has a 15.4″ LCD option that gives you either a super-bright dual-CCFL 1920 x 1200 LCD or one with a RGB LED backlight and 1920 x 1200 that gives you great color. The 15.4″ in the P510-UP98K is just your average LED backlit LCD. LG states in the video (below) that the display performance was enhanced by 50%: I’m curious as to what performance LG is talking about. LG is pointing to the P510 as the company’s “strategic notebook” for 2009. Well, I’m sorry to say that LG needs to aim just a bit higher, at least when it comes to display technology. LG, how about an IPS panel in a notebook PC? Video after the break.
LG added some bling-bling to the P510-UP98K with the trackpad corners lit via LED–a bit tacky since I don’t think there is anyone that will have trouble figuring out where the trackpad is but kudos to LG for trying to make things different.
