LG LS50-8


The LS50-8 is a great-looking slim (2.7kg) silver machine with great battery life (worst-case scenario of 85 minutes). It features a 15" display capab...

Good design, lightweight

Slightly pricey

While the LGE LS50-8 is light, looks great and has good battery life, is it slightly overpriced.

Seven Years Old & Still Going Strong


This is the best notebook PC that I have ever owned. I bought it in 2004 when it was specced well ahead of the pack with a DVD+/-RW and high resolution screen. It has run faultlessly ever since, other than he screen backlight failing a year ago. I now...

Reliable, faultless & still running everything in 2011

Display backlight failed when it was 6 years old

My LG LS50 is now well over 4 years old and is still going strong. Although we bought a new notebook PC in 2007, we still use the LG LS50 as our main PC and only use the newer one for Media Centre (as it has a TV tuner) and for some games that need...

Price. Screen resolution. ATI vid card with dedicated memory. Firewire/iLink port (for connecting video camera). Fairly lightweight. Reliability and longevity. Windows XP Pro not Home edition.

SD card slot never worked. HDD failed after 3 years.

My opinion of this laptop is quite high, I like it's feature's and its durability, it is quite a tough little machine. Another good point is that it is a leading brand. Dell. It is a yes from me.

Stylish and eyecatching. It has quite a bit of storage space on it and Is Perfect for somone who is either on the go or in need of a smart laptop for his/hers Buisness. It is not very heavy, ideal for a laptop bag as it will not wiegh down your neck.

It only comes with a standard window xp version. It shpould come with the latest windows vista.

LG has made a huge comeback over the past several years and the LG LS50-3 being a great product showing the improvement is very impressive. I find this much better than many other products, such as sony.

Very compact with a good amount of memory

Battery life could be improved

Overall it is a handy piece of gadjet, giving you all the things needed and giving you a high quality result.

The LG LS50-3 is a very handy and light unit, can be taken almost everywhere you want to go. Offers you so much, and helps if you are a buisness person, needing it everywhere you go. Some people have it as an extra item in the house but can come in...

The battery is the most painful part in having this for if it dies halve way while your doing lets say work you lose it all.

If LG charge a wholesaler $44 AU plus $14 postage to fix one of their design faults, which LG do not have to even install, rather than doing it for cost, they have no interest in keeping their current customers happy. Therefore, they only care about...

It does what most other notebooks do for around the same price.

customer has 2x LS50 series notebooks. Both had to be repaired under warranty for damaged dc ports. They are no longer under warranty and the ports have broken again on both laptops. these laptops live on desks, they are not carried around, taken home,...

Its not the best performing laptop when it comes to graphics (games and stuff), it's a very good package for someone who just needs to use it for simple programs like word processing, accessing the net and other things.

Very good sized keyboard, big bright and clear screen. Controls are well laid out and the wireless connectivity feature works well. Sort of light to carry and use/ Very easy to operate and you're able to use a few different applications at the same...

The big screen without widescreen function, very low performance, it could be lighter than 2.7kg, get a bigger screen, wireless slows down the machine considerably, not very good tech support and has a really slow boot up. Also, battery life could be a...
