A notebook, also known as laptop, is a portable computer. When you are looking for the right notebook, it is important to know where you are going to work with it. Do you want to use it on the road? Choose a model with a special energy-saving \'mobile\' processor, a good battery and a reasonably small display. This will allow you to work longer with the same battery and saves you the trouble of carrying around a large display that consumes a lot of precious battery power. Or will you be using you notebook mainly in places where you will have access to a power outlet? Then choose a desktop processor (more processing power for less money) and an ordinary battery. This will save you a lot of money, which you could then spend on a bigger screen. You\'ll work faster because you can view more information at once and it\'s great for multimedia!

Processor frequency*
The speed that the microprocessor executes each instruction or each vibration of the clock. The CPU requires a fixed number of clock ticks, or cycles, to execute each instruction. The faster the clocks rate, the faster the CPU, or the faster it can execute instructions. Clock Speeds are usually determined in MHz, 1 MHz representing 1 million cycles per second, or in GHz, 1 GHz representing 1 thousand million cycles per second. The higher the CPU speed, the better a computer will perform.
1.5 GHz
Processor manufacturer
The manufacturer that produced the processor.
Processor front side bus
A computer communications interface used to connect the processor to the rest of the computer, except the cache (and possibly other processors).
400 MHz
Internal memory*
A computer's memory which is directly accessible to the CPU.
0.5 GB
Hard drive
Hard disk drive type
ATA-100 (Enhanced IDE)
Total storage capacity*

Display diagonal*
Size of the display for this product, measured diagonally, usually in inches.
38.1 cm (15")
Display resolution*
The number of distinct pixels in each dimension that can be displayed. It is usually quoted as width × height, with the units in pixels: for example, "1024 × 768" means the width is 1024 pixels and the height is 768 pixels. The higher the number of pixels, the sharper the image.
1400 x 1050 pixels
Contrast ratio (typical)
The difference in light intensity between the brightest white and the darkest black.
Discrete graphics adapter*
Discrete graphics adapter model*
A graphics adapter (often known as a video card) generates images for a display. A discrete graphics adapter plugs into the motherboard, and usually produces much better graphics than an integrated graphics adapter. There are various models of discrete graphics adapters.
