ATI Radeon Xpress 1150: Faster clocked Xpress 1100 onboard graphics card with x300 core. Should run Vista Aero Glass fluently.
These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.
AMD Turion 64 X2: AMD Turion 64 X2 is intended to be positioned against the Intel Core Duo was presented in 17. May 2006. The current consumption is not higher than with Centrino-Duo-notebooks (TL-45 with ATI Xpress and Mobility Radeon X300). This means, that approximative the same battery runtime and fan functions can be expected (with this chipset). However, the performance was 20% below the T2300 (1.66 GHz) due to the lower L2 Cache (Core Duo has 2048 Kbyte shared L2 Cache). Nevertheless, the performance is sufficient.
In 90nm (33W TDP) and 65nm (31W TDP) produced dual core processor with a clock rate of 1.8 GHz. The TL-56 is still based on the K8 core and compareable to a slower clocked Core Duo.

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.
Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
This weight is typical for very big tablets, subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 11-13 inch display-diagonal.
