The CPU offers eight threads, 8MB of Level 3 cache and 55W max. TDP.
Users are further provided with an 11.6-inch widescreen display with a maximum supported resolution of 1366-by-768 pixels, a 2GB discrete NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M GPU built using 28nm technology (Kepler architecture) and a 62.16WH battery that is good for up to 6.8 hours of usage.
