AMD Radeon HD 6290:

Integrated graphics card in some Ontario netbook processors (e.g. C-60) featuring an UVD3 video decoder and no dedicated memory. Compared to the HD 6250, the 6290 features Turbo Core to overclock automatically to 400MHz.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

C-60:

Dual Core low power processor with an integrated graphics cards. Due to the low clock speed, the CPU should be only as fast as a single core Atom CPU, but offers a faster integrated GPU.

15.6": 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. However nowadays, more and more 16:9 displays with 15.6 inch appear. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.4 kg: This notebook is lighter than the average of all notebooks. It is too heavy for sub-notebooks. 14 inch displays are normal for this class of weight.
