 Performance Comparisons with 3DMark06
 Details: http://www.futuremark.com/products/3dmark06/

The Futuremark 3DMark06 CPU 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.



Would you look at that? Just a few months ago, we figured the raft of CULV machines had found a niche. Now, we're not so sure. This Core i3-powered machine made the CULV UL80Vt look slow, and it retails for just $100 or so more than most CULV laptops on the market today. It's just shy of matching the Core i5-powered Samsung R580, too. Would you pay $100 more for an ultraportable with a CPU that's capable of demolishing the machine that's just $100 less? We think a lot of people would, and if you're in that camp, you can rest assured that the U30Jc will make that extra bill go a long way.
