Reviews for the Eurocom T3 Contessa
Source: Computer Shopper
The Eurocom T3 Contessa is one of a handful of super-slim ultraportables with 13-inch screens to hit the market in recent months. While we appreciate the slender design and solid feel, the T3 Contessa’s $1,000 street price is about $200 more than that of the very similar MSI X-Slim X340 and Lenovo IdeaPad U350 we tested recently, while delivering the same subpar performance. And considering that the new Asus UL30A-A1, a similar 13-inch ultraportable, delivers better performance and battery life for less money than the T3 Contessa, the Eurocom entry is hard to recommend. The wafer-thin Contessa is a 13.3-inch ultraportable that travels easily but has sluggish performance and short battery life.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500MHD: Onboard (shared Memory) GPU built in the GM45, GE45 and GS45 chipset (Montevina). Because of two more shaders and a higher core clock, much faster than the old GMA X3100. Still not advisable for gamers (DirectX 10 games not playable or only with very low settings). The integrated video processor is able to help decode HD videos (AVC/VC-2/MPEG2) , e.g., for a fluent Blu-Ray playback with slow CPUs.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
SU2700: Entry level Single Core CPU with less power saving states as the Core line and because of the slow clock rate (1.3 GHz) not very fast. Directly soldered to the mainboard and therefore for thin and light laptops (CULV class). » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
