ATI Mobility Radeon X1350: ATI Mobility Radeon X1350 is higher clocked (nevertheless it has the same current consumption) version of the X1300 graphic card for laptops. It hardly can only be used for games at the time of arrival (low resolution, low details, non-fluently).
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
Intel Core Duo: Double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption. The 2 MB L2 Cache are used together by the double. The maximum capacity of 31 watts is only 4 watts more than with the Pentium M (predecessor). Both cores are lowered automatically and independently of each other by speed steps down to 1 GHz. In addition it now supports also SSE3 instructions. At least it is just as fast as a equivalent Pentium M. With applications, which were designed for multi-processors, the performance can be nearly twice as fast as with the Pentium M (e.g. CineBench around 86% fast)
