NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT SLI: Two DirectX 10 medium class GeForce 8600M GT graphic cards combined by SLI. Due to SLI they are 0-60% faster than one single card depending on the game. The performance is sufficient for current games but not sufficient for DirectX 10 detail levels. The graphic chip H.264 offers hardware acceleration for videos.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics 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.
The Core 2 Duo T7500 is a Merom based Core 2 Duo with 4MB Level 2 Cache. It is positioned in the middle class (in 2009) and performs on par with a modern P7550 or Turion II Ultra M640/M660.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.

This weight is representative for typical laptops with a 14-16 inch display-diagonal.
