AMD Radeon HD 8210:

An integrated GCN-based GPU with 128 shader units and no dedicated VRAM. It is typically clocked at 300 MHz and paired with AMD A4-1250 "Temash" and E1-2100 "Kabini" APUs.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

E1-2100: Dual-core APU for low-end ultraportables and netbooks, codenamed Kabini. Based on the Jaguar architecture. Integrates a Radeon HD 8210 graphics card.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.


11.60":

This screen diagoal is quite large for tablets but small for subnotebooks. Some convertibles are also represented with that size.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

1.3 kg:

This weight is typical for big tablets, small subnotebooks, ultrabooks and convertibles with a 10-11 inch display-diagonal.
