 Details: http://www.futuremark.com/products/3dmark06/

The Futuremark 3DMark06 benchmark consists of tests that use the CPU to render 3D scenes, rather than the GPU. It runs several threads simultaneously and is designed to utilize multiple processor cores.


The Intel 7350 Core 2 Duo 2.0 GHz processor in the Y530 performs within expectations when compared to the 2.1 GHz processors used in the reference systems.

I recently helped a friend buy their first laptop and they ended up getting this exact model. Every time I see it I get more and more jealous. I really find the build quality to be superb and they have absolutely no trouble with it. I may end up getting one for myself down the road. Definitely a nice machine.

/agree. I think half the problem I have with other laptops today is that a long series of Ideapad precursors (IBM Thinkpads) have set my expectations relatively high.

Looking great, although I've never used a Lenovo laptop before.

Just a typo I spotted: [edited / fixed -thanks for the head's up ]

How heavy is this? I have a acer laptop but it is damn heavy. I'd like something that is under 2kg or 15 lbs.

thanks
