Touching allowed. The Touch notebook can’t decide if it’s for entertainment or technology enthusiasts. An ATI Hybrid Graphics, strong Core i5, 7200 rpm HDD are all oriented toward performance. The hand input function rounds out the whole package.

Comment

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4550: The HD 4550 is a faster clocked HD 4530 and therefore entry level graphics card. It was substituted by the HD 5430 with the same clock rates.

Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.

430M:

The Core i5-430M is a middle class dual core CPU that features only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-640M) and clocks between 2.26-2.53 GHz (Turbo Mode). Furthermore, VT-d, trusted Execution and AES features are missing in the 430M. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 500-733 MHz) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.

13.3": This is a common display format for subnotebooks. Netbooks, UMPC and some subnotebooks have tinier displays. Nevertheless, the majority of standard laptops has a higher format. The advantage of a small display is, that the subnotebook can be small dimensioned and can be carried easily. Further the small display needs few energy, which improves the battery runtime and in consequence the mobility. The disadvantage is that the reading of texts is a bit exhausting for the eyes, especially with high resolutions.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.38 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.
