Reviews for the ASRock M15
Source: Digital Versus
ASRock is well known for bringing out motherboards with attractive price/quality ratios. For some time now, the budget brand of the well-known manufacturer Asus, has also been producing a laptop range following the same recipe. An all-round model at the price of a netbook and delivered without a pre-installed OS. Something for those on a small budget then, as well as Linux fans. The ASRock M15 isn’t a bad machine when you look at its pricing. You find better elsewhere but pay more! Well equipped, performance on this laptop is limited and it has a glossy panel!

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500M: The graphics core of the Intel GL40 and GS40 chipset features a slower clocked GMA 4500MHD (400 versus 533 MHz). Because of the slower core speed, full Blu-Ray Logo support is not given and the gaming performance is a bit worse.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
Intel Celeron Dual-Core: The Intel Celeron Dual-Core familiy consists out of dual core CPUs for cheap laptops. Compared to the Celeron M single core family the biggest advantage (in addition to the second core) is the Enhanced Speedstep function, which enables the notebook to downclock the CPU in Idle mode. Therefore, the current consumption can be much lower. Compared to the Core (2) Duo or Pentium Dual-Core processors, the Celeron Cual-Core features much less L2 Cache which leads to a lower performance per clock.
Merom based dual core processor with a reduced feature set (power saving functions, virtualization features) with a small level 2 cache.
