It's GREAT. It's only 1300$ (best deal for me 2 months ago). It can handle NFS Most Wanted and Carbon at 800x600 res, MAX details smoothly . You'll find it a little bit slow at max res (1024x768). It scores 2500 3d05 marks. Not yet on PCmark05. It's design's average. Build quality's not bad. Screen resolution and angle is enough for me.

AMD Turion 64 X2: AMD Turion 64 X2 is intended to be positioned against the Intel Core Duo was presented in 17. May 2006. The current consumption is not higher than with Centrino-Duo-notebooks (TL-45 with ATI Xpress and Mobility Radeon X300). This means, that approximative the same battery runtime and fan functions can be expected (with this chipset). However, the performance was 20% below the T2300 (1.66 GHz) due to the lower L2 Cache (Core Duo has 2048 Kbyte shared L2 Cache). Nevertheless, the performance is sufficient.


TL-50: In 90nm produced dual core processor with a low clock rate of 1.6 GHz. The TL-50 is still based on the K8 core and compareable to a slower clocked Core Duo.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


15.4": 15 inch display-variants are the standard and are used for more than the half of all notebooks. 15.4 inch display with 16:10 are the standard for notebook displays.

3 kg: This weight is average for notebooks. Therefore the numerous mass of laptops with 15 inch display fits in this class of weight.
