A screen of a laptop, smartphone, etc., that responds to touch so you can control the interface using your fingers.
The device can be used with 3D technology.
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.
A backlight is a form of illumination used in liquid crystal displays (LCDs). One type of backlight is made by LEDs, which can be either white or RGB (red green blue). White LEDs are used most often in notebooks and desktop screens, and in virtually all mobile LCD screens. RGB LEDs for backlighting are found in high-end color proofing displays such as HP DreamColor LP2480zx monitor or selected HP EliteBook notebooks, as well as newer consumer grade displays such as Dell's Studio series laptops which have an optional RGB LED display.
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.
Processor family *
A family of processors is a group of processors produced by one company over a short period of time e.g. Intel Pentium processors.
Intel® Core™ i3
Processor model *
The model number for the processor in a computer.
The number of central processing units ('cores') in a processor. Some processors have 1 core, others have 2 (e.g. Intel Core Duo) or more (e.g. the Intel Xeon E7-2850 has 10 cores).
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.
The CPU cache (Level 2) is a smaller, faster memory which stores copies of the data from the most frequently used main memory locations.
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.
Intel Core i3-300 Mobile series
The chipset connects the microprocessor to the rest of the motherboard.

Number and type of memory expansion slots, including connector and memory module descriptions.
Total storage capacity *
The total amount of data that can be stored on the device.
Storage media *
Used for the storage of data e.g. HDD (hard disk drive), SSD (solid-state drive).
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.
The maximum storage capacity of the hard disk, usually measured in bytes e.g. GB.
The way that a hard disk drive (HDD) is connected to the rest of the computer through a 'bus' such as ATA or SCSI.
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.

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.

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.
Fourth generation of mobile phone mobile communication technology standards. A 4G system provides mobile ultra-broadband Internet access, for example to laptops with USB wireless modems, to smartphones, and to other mobile devices. Conceivable applications include amended mobile web access, IP telephony, gaming services, high-definition mobile TV, video conferencing, 3D television, and cloud computing.
Popular technology that allows an electronic device to exchange data or connect to the internet wirelessly using radio waves.
Wi-Fi standards *
