Intel Iris Plus Graphics 655: Integrated graphics card (GT3e), which is used for some Coffee Lake-U CPUs (28 Watts).

Modern games should be playable with these graphics cards at low settings and resolutions. Casual gamers may be happy with these cards.

i5-8259U: Coffee Lake based SoC (System on a Chip) for medium-sized notebooks. Integrates four CPU cores clocked at 2.3-3.8 GHz as well as an Iris Plus Graphics 655 GPU clocked at 300 - 1050 MHz with 128 MB eDRAM. Manufactured in a 14nm process. The TDP of 28 Watts is much higher than the regular ULV quad-cores at 15W.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


There are hardly any tablets in this display size range anymore. For subnotebooks, on the other hand, it is the standard format.

The advantage of subnotebooks is that the entire laptop can be small and therefore easily portable. The smaller display also has the advantage of requiring less power, which further improves battery life and thus mobility. The disadvantage is that reading texts is more strenuous on the eyes. High resolutions are more likely to be found in standard laptops.

79%: This rating is not earth-shattering. This rating must actually be seen as average, since there are about as many devices with worse ratings as better ones. A purchase recommendation can only be seen with a lot of goodwill, unless it is about websites that generally rate strictly.
