Reviews for the Kobalt Mojave
The Mojave is a powerful laptop offering a good compromise between cost and performance. Kobalt is a UK manufacturer of gaming laptops, with its products using a generic chassis and adding the latest components to offer impressive performance and value for money. Although the Kobalt Mojave lacks the bespoke feel of some of its competitors, and is less powerful than the highest-end ATI-based machines, it packs a punch and offers impressive quality and usability.

NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280M:
The GeForce GTX 280M is based on the G92b chip with all 128 pipelines and, as a result, shares more similarities to the desktop 9800 GTX+ than the desktop GTX 280. Regardless, the high clock rate makes the GTX 280M considerably faster than the 9800M GTX.
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.
Middle class dual core CPU with a TDP of 25 Watt. For high end gamer the performance could be not sufficient (for class 1 graphic cards).» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
