The model is rather old and was once positioned as an expensive office notebook. The distinguishing feature of this computer is its chipset which is made by ATI rather than by Intel, as usual.
Our modification comes with 512 megabytes of system memory by default, which is a nice thing, too. The exterior is demure enough, without any designer’s whims. The notebook seems just a little bit fat, maybe.
