Product and Performance Information


1. Blu-ray* playback: Test was performed using CyberLink Power DVD* pre-production retail version 8.0.1826.50 to playback the movie "300" in repeat mode until the battery is fully drained. The movie is 116 minutes long. The results of this test is based on a specific notebook and configuration. Results may vary.

2. MobileMark* 2007 is a benchmark used to evaluate notebook PC user experience by measuring both performance and battery life at the same time on the same workload. MobileMark 2007 was released in August 2007 and contains workloads that are updated from those found in MobileMark* 2005. Because the workloads within MobileMark 2007 and MobileMark 2005 are different and operating system features between Microsoft Windows* XP and Microsoft Windows* Vista also differ, it is not meaningful to compare the performance scores or battery life results of these two benchmarks.

3. Performance tests and ratings are measured using specific computer systems and/or components and reflect the approximate performance of Intel® products as measured by those tests. Any difference in system hardware or software design or configuration may affect actual performance. Buyers should consult other sources of information to evaluate the performance of systems or components they are considering purchasing. For more information on performance tests and on the performance of Intel products, visit www.intel.com/content/www/us/en/benchmarks/resources-benchmark-limitations.html.

4. Relative performance for each benchmark is calculated by taking the actual benchmark result for the first platform tested and assigning it a value of 1.0 as a baseline. Relative performance for the remaining platforms tested was calculated by dividing the actual benchmark result for the baseline platform into each of the specific benchmark results of each of the other platforms and assigning them a relative performance number that correlates with the performance improvements reported.
