Intel's 4th generation Core processors, based on the company's Haswell microarchitecture, have done good things for ultrabooks this year. Thanks to Haswell, Ultrabooks have moved much closer to Intel’s original vision of thin, light, low-power (but still powerful) systems that eschew outdated components and usher in new features like ultra high resolutions and touchscreen displays.

Hardware Secrets thinks the pre-overclocked XFX GeForce 6600 256MB DDR2 is a solid value for those looking for a mid-range graphics card. We thought so too, and even gave the card an Editor's Choice award a few months back."Nowadays the GeForce 6600 chip is located on the top of all entry-level nVidia GPUs (or at the bottom of all mid-range graphics chips, depending on how you look the market).
