Comment

NVIDIA GeForce 9100M G: The GeForce 9100M G is an onboard graphics card that is based on the 9200M core (but without dedicated memory). Therefore, it supports PureVideo HD (VP3) to decode HD videos. In conjunction with dedicated 9x00M graphic cards the 9100M G supports GeForceBoost to enhance the performance. The combination with 9200M GS / 9300M GS is called GeForce 9400M.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

QL-62:

Similar to the Turion X2 CPU, but with reduced power saving functions (no deep sleep, only 2 instead of 3 P-states). Compareable to a 1.3-1.9 GHz Core 2 Duo (depending on the application).

16.0": 16 inch display-variants exist since 2008 and partially got the market share of 15 inch notebooks. The reason why so many people like displays with medium size is, that this size is not exhausting for the eyes, does not need too much energy and the laptops can be kept quite compact.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.


2.7 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.
