The base model includes a low-voltage Intel Core i3-2357M running at 1.3GHz, a 750GB 7200rpm hard drive, 4GB of RAM and of course the Nvidia GT 540M with Optimus technology. Optional upgrades include faster Core i5 and Core i7 processors, up to 16GB of RAM, solid state drives and the speedier “Killer” wireless-N card.
This is the 3rd revision of the M11x and a major update over the previous versions. It has made the move to 2nd-generation Sandy Bridge Core i5 and Core i7 CPUs (low voltage), and from an Nvidia GeForce GT 335M to the considerably more powerful GeForce GT 540M.
Compared to the earlier versions, the new graphics card is also much faster. The GeForce GT 540M is equipped with 96 shaders (processing units) compared to 72 shaders in the 335M, and the core clock is also higher–672MHz instead of 450MHz. This should translate into a performance increase of around 20-25% in actual gaming performance. All in all, this is not surprisingly the world’s fastest 11.6-inch laptop.
