Although we loved the build and look of the ultra-cheap MSI Megabook M670 013UK laptop, we were less impressed with its test results. The games framerate result in particular is awful. But the MSI Megabook M670 013UK is refreshingly inexpensive.

NVIDIA GeForce Go 6100: The NVIDIA GeForce Go 6100 / 6150 is an integrated graphics card of the NVIDIA nForce Go 430 MCP for AMD Turion notebooks. It doesn't have any integrated memory, but uses a part of the mainmemory (up to 128 MB) like the direct competitor Intel GMA 950. Therefore, the gaming performance is quite moderate and can only be used for elder games.
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.
TL-50: In 90nm produced dual core processor with a low clock rate of 1.6 GHz. The TL-50 is still based on the K8 core and compareable to a slower clocked Core Duo.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
15-inch display variants are the standard and are used for more than half of all laptops.
The reason for the popularity of mid-sized displays is that this size is reasonably easy on the eyes, often allows high resolutions and thus offers rich details on the screen, yet does not consume too much power and the devices can still be reasonably compact - simply the standard compromise.» To find out how fine a display is, see our DPI List.
With this weight, a laptop is rather heavier than average. Devices in this range shine more with screen size and performance than with mobility.

69.33%: This rating is poor. More than three quarters of the models are rated better. That is rather not a purchase recommendation. Even if verbal ratings in this area do not sound that bad ("sufficient" or "satisfactory"), they are usually euphemisms that disguise a classification as a below-average laptop.
