Comment

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280M SLI:

Two GeForce GTX 280M graphics cards in SLI combination. The performance is about 0-40% faster than a single GTX 280M, depending on the application. Due to the SLI setup, users may experience micro stuttering, especially in the 30fps range.

With these GPUs you are able to play modern and demanding games fluently at medium detail settings and HD resolution.

» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.


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.


T9900: Fastest (in 2009) Core 2 Duo Dual Core CPU and similar to the Core 2 Extreme X9100 (withouth the free multiplicator, but instead less TDP and cheaper). Very well suited for games and demanding applications. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


18.4":

This is a very large display size for laptops on a desk without mobile use.

» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


5.35 kg:

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.


84%: This rating should be considered to be average. This is because the proportion of notebooks which have a higher rating is approximately equal to the proportion which have a lower rating.
