The configuration is fairly well designed, with 2.53GHz Intel Core i3-380m processor , 3GB of DDR3 memory (it is possible to upgrade it to 4GB), 500GB hard drive and a separate nVidia GeForce 310M graphics card, which has 1GB of its own memory. Since there is integrated graphic too, as well as support for NVIDIA Optimus technology, the system will turn on automatically one at a time or two graphic cards depending on the requirements. In addition to the LAN adapter, there are also Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n and Bluetooth 2.1. Thanks to 4400mAh built-in battery, autonomy is 4 hours of average usage, which is very good considering the fact this is a good configuration. In addition, the package comes with a carrying case, and a mouse with an attractive bamboo finish that perfectly fits the laptop.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

NVIDIA GeForce 310M: The GeForce 310M is the successor of the GeFore G210M and based on the same chip with very similar clock rates (shader speed +30MHz to 1530MHz).

Intel Core i3:

350M:

The Core i3-350M is technically a Core i5-430M without the Turbo Boost overlocking feature. Therefore, it always clocks with max. 2.26 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.

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.


13.3: This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.

1.5 kg:

This sub-notebook weighs less than the average of all notebooks and represents a medium class of weight among the sub-notebooks. 11 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.

1.7 kg:


80%: This rating is not convincing. The laptop is evaluated below average, this is not really a recommendation for purchase.
