If we consider gaming performances, the winner is decided by nuances and better optimization for one or other graphics card. That means, that in some games better frame rate will have GX720 and in some GT735. Processor overclock sounds like great possibility but it results with little improvements in games because bottle neck is actually graphics cards. What model you will choose depends on your budget, but one thing is for sure: you will get very quality notebook with enviably performances as in games as in all other segments.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 3850: Lower clocked desktop HD 3850 manufactured in 55 nm and with DirectX 10.1 support. The performance should be somewhere between 8800 GTS and GTX and therefore it should perform quite well for games like Call of Duty 4. The Avivo HD video engine helps the cpu in decoding HD videos.
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
AMD Turion X2 Ultra: The AMD Turion X2 Ultra is part of the Puma platform and a mixture of the old K9 core (form the Turion 64 X2) and some parts of the K10 architecture (memorycontroller, hypertransport, crossbar switch from the Phenom). Because of the increased L2 cache ("Ultra" CPUs) and the improved memory controller, the performance increased a bit. Still a similar clocked Core 2 Duo is noticably faster.
Mixture out of two K8 based cores and K10 uncores (e.g. memory controller). Offers improved power saving functions compared to older Turion CPUs but still not as good and fast as a Core 2 Duo.

This range for display formats was and is a rarity. It is larger than the general standard of 15 inches, but not yet in the range of large workstations. One usually has higher screen resolutions available, but portability suffers from that.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
Only a few laptops are in this weight class because the mobility is rather limited due to the high weight.

85.6%: This is an above-average rating. Nevertheless, it should not be forgotten that about one fifth of all tested models receive a better rating.
