Reviews for the Advent Quantum Q100
On its own merits, the Quantum Q100 is a likeable, if unexceptional, laptop that is a good choice for first-time buyers. Against such strong rivals, its limited mobility and lack of software means it falls short, however, making it hard to recommend.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 950: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 is an integrated (onboard) graphic chip on Mobile Intel 945GM chipset. It is a faster clocked version of the GMA 900 and supports no hardware T&L (Transform & Lightning) accelleration (which is required for some games).
