Reviews for the Asus P31JG-RO157X
Source: Digital Versus
Let us introduce you to the Asus P31JG, with its 13.3 inch matte panel, core i3 processor, dedicated graphics card and, according to the manufacturer, impressive battery life. It's really a shame that the finish on this model doesn't do justice to the performance under the hood and the excellent battery life (5h45). Poor finish aside, this is an excellent ultra portable laptop.

NVIDIA GeForce GT 415M: The GT 415M is the slowest GT 400M announced in 09/2010 and features only half of the GF108 cores.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
380M: The Core i3-380M is a fast clocked Core i3. The TurboBoost, AES, VTd, and Trusted Execution functions are deactivated in the i3-series. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.53 GHz (of course Speedstep is included). Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
