hd dvd drive, 512 mb video,
This notebook is a logical step of the development of a 9500-series of premium class multimedia notebooks. The user receives a set of advanced multimedia features such as big (17-inch widescreen display with a CrystalBrite technology, two lamps lights and excellent color rendition), 512 MB of video RAM (GDDR3 of NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900) and HD DVD - drive (without a carriage, saving space around the laptop) - ideal for viewing DVD-movies, working with graphics or gaming. This notebook is based on the latest 64-bit platform for Intel Centrino Duo, using a processor Core 2 Duo, which gives an excellent performance, together with a small power consumption.
This model runs at 2000 MHz, the frequency of bus is 667 MHz processor and has the second-level cache is 4 MB - not bad for the replacement of desktop PC!
WXGA screen displays 16.7 million colors (with a rather low resolution of 1440 by 900) - the standard for notebooks of this class.
240 GB hard drive interface is SATA, and a rotation of the spindle speed is about 5400 - Very average performance, because manufacturer could put into this device even more memory up to 500 Gb!
Really pleased with the sound subsystem: It is a widespread AC97, but it has a built in 4.1 sound!
Testing preferences of announced HD DVD-drive, I can easily overtake the the characteristics of the speed of reading and writing: the writing speed of some DVD-ROM drive is handle for the 6x, and rewrites reaches 4x!
In addition to the numerous and very conveniently located input / output ports should be noted IEEE1394 (FireWire) and FIR (IrDA1.1). The availability of the first are always welcome, as regards the last, his presence remains in question and it was slightly puzzled at the accustomed to use wireless technology WiFi and Bluetooth users. To the article, WiFi and Bluetooth technology in our notebook sold at an altitude - this is Bluetooth 2.0 and WiFi 802.11b, 802.11g.
Special thanks to the voice fax modem (supported protocols are V.90, V.92 provides you seamless sending-receiving faxes, and many other voice functions!).
A bit of unpleasant details. The size, in good sense, monsters - almost 40 by 30 by 5 cm, weight - 4 kg. Work on batteries for about 2 hours. I hope no one come to mind to take him under his arm and go to work!
EXCELLENT REPLACEMENT TABLE MULTIMEDIA PC!
