Hands-on with the LG P210 12.5 inch portable notebook

The LG P210 is one of the first thin and light laptops with a 12.5 inch display. But that’ not its only claim to fame. The little laptop also has one of the smallest screen bezels around, and a super-slim design.

I spotted the P210 at the Microsoft booth today, and it’s a nice looking machine. It’s also pretty light at just 2.8 pounds. The chiclet-style keyboard is attractive, but I found it a little awkward to type on. I’m not sure if that’s because of how far back the keyboard rests on the base of the computer or if the keys weren’t as responsive as I’d like. I’m sure it’s something one could get used to, though.

The LG P210 will be available with an Intel Core i3 or Core i5 processor, 4GB of RAM and a 320GB hard drive. It runs Windows 7 Home Premium. There’s no word on whether this model will make it to the States, but it’s expected to sell for around $1100 in Korea.
