Inside our review sample was a Core i5-2467M CPU which is a dual core model with hyperthreading that runs at 1.6GHz as standard, turbo-ing up to 2.3GHz when required. This CPUs sits on a QS67 chipset based board and also connected to this is 4GB of DDR3, on our sample using a 1333MHz single channel configuration.
Built on to the CPU is Intel’s HD GPU which provides us with our operating system and productivity experience as well as basic gaming supporting DirectX 10.1. It is also able to assist the CPU when combined with appropriate software such as Cyberlink Media Expresso where the GPU can speed up conversion times as well as reduce CPU use, freeing it up for other tasks.
Finally as far as key internal components are concerned we have a SATA 3 based SSD, on mSATA connector. This is a Samsung P830 model and Dell offer options of 128 and 256GB. The battery is an 6-Cell model rated for 47WHr and the usual wireless-N (dual band) and Bluetooth connectivity are present.
