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.
1600 x 900 pixels
Type of supported High Definition (e.g. Full HD, 4K Ultra HD).
The aspect ratio is the ratio of the width of a shape to its height. For example, 4:3 is common for standard displays and 16:9 is the ratio for Widescreen TV.
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.

System bus rate
A bus is a communication system that transfers data between components inside a computer, or between computers. The system bus rate is the speed at which data is transferred in this communication system.
Processor cache type
Mechanical component(s) that provides mechanical and electrical connections between a microprocessor and a printed circuit board (PCB). This allows the processor to be replaced without soldering.
The process which is performed by the processor e.g. CPU (Central Processing Unit).
Processor operating modes
Operating modes for the processors that place restrictions on the type and scope of operations for certain processes run by the CPU. This design allows the operating system to run with more privileges than application software.

Total storage capacity *
The total amount of data that can be stored on the device.
Card reader integrated *
The device includes a card reader e.g. a card reader in the disk bay of a computer or thin client to permit log-on using smart/pin cards.
Number of hard drives installed
The number of hard drives built into the device.
Hard drive interface
The way that a hard disk drive (HDD) is connected to the rest of the computer through a 'bus' such as ATA or SCSI.
Hard drive speed
The rotational speed of a hard disk expressed in rotations per minute. The faster the better.
Compatible memory cards
Types of memory cards which can be used with this product.
Memory Stick (MS), MMC, MS PRO, SD, xD
On-board graphics adapter *
Graphics hardware which is built into the motherboard or CPU, as opposed to a separate graphics adapter (video card). On-board graphics uses CPU and RAM for graphics processing.
Discrete graphics adapter *
On-board graphics adapter model *
"Graphic adapter" is the hardware that produces images on a display. "On-board" means that the graphics adapter is intergrated inside the motherboard.
Intel® HD Graphics
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.
AMD Mobility Radeon HD 5470
On-board graphics adapter family
Intel® HD Graphics
On-board graphics adapter base frequency
On-board graphics adapter dynamic frequency (max)

Optical drive type *
An optical drive uses laser to read optical discs such as CDs, DVDs and Blu-Ray. Some types of optical drive are: CD ROM drive, CR-RW (CD writer) drive, DVD-ROM.
DVD Super Multi DL
Optical disc recording technology, created by Hewlett-Packard (HP), that uses specially coated recordable CD and DVD media to produce laser-etched labels with text or graphics, as opposed to stick-on labels and printable discs.
Optical drive interface
Bluetooth is a low-power radio technology developed to replace the cables and wires currently used to link or connect electronic devices such as personal computers, printers, and a wide variety of handheld devices including mobile phones. Because it uses radio-wave connectivity, a Bluetooth-enabled device has a constant, established connection to whatever browser it uses. This saves the user the trouble of logging on to check for emails or news updates, for example.
Third generation of mobile telecommunications technology, 3G finds application in wireless voice telephony, mobile Internet access, fixed wireless Internet access, video calls and mobile TV.
Popular technology that allows an electronic device to exchange data or connect to the internet wirelessly using radio waves.
Ethernet LAN *
An Ethernet LAN (Local Area Network) interface is present, for a wired conection via a cable.
Type of cable technology performance.
USB 2.0 ports quantity *
Number of USB 2.0 ports (connecting interfaces) in the device. USB 2.0 was released in April 2000 (now called "Hi-Speed"), adding higher maximum signaling rate of 480 Mbit/s (effective throughput up to 35 MB/s or 280 Mbit/s), USB 2.0 ports are usually black.
Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports
Number of Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports (connecting interfaces) in the device. Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports allow a computer to connect to the ethernet.
Digital Visual Interface (DVI) is a video display interface to connect a video source to a display device, such as a computer monitor.
VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity
Number of VGA (D-Sub) ports (connecting interfaces) in the device. The VGA (D-Sub) connector is a 15 pin connector between a computer and a monitor. It was first introduced in 1987 by IBM.

S/PDIF out port
S/PDIF (Sony/Philips Digital Interconnect Format) is a digital audio interconnect used in consumer audio equipment over relatively short distances. The signal is transmitted over either a coaxial cable with RCA connectors or a fibre optic cable with TOSLINK connectors.
The socket where a microphone is connected to the device.
Connector used to attach a mobile electronic device simultaneously to multiple external resources. The dock connector will typically carry a variety of signals and power, through a single connector, to simplify the process of docking the mobile device. A dock connector may be embedded in a mechanical fixture used to support or align the mobile device or may be at the end of a cable.
