NVIDIA GeForce 9800M GT:

Based on the G92 core, but only with 96 shaders. The performance should be similar to the 8800M GTX. PureVideo HD supports decoding of HD Videos.

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).

The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.


The T9400 is a fast middle class dual core CPU for laptops and basically a Core 2 Duo P9500 with a higher TDP of 35 Watt.

Clevo: Founded in 1983, CLEVO is an important Taiwanese notebook computer manufacturer for distributors and OEM/ODM partners (barebone production). Service centers exist in  in USA, Germany, Britain, China, and Taiwan. Clevo laptops are rarely sold directly to consumers. Therefore scarcely any reviews for Clevo laptops exist as these are branded with other names.

89.5%: There do not exist many models, which are rated better. The most ratings get ratings, which are a bit worse.
