This laptop features the AMD Turion II processor (model P540).  This is a 64-bit, dual-core processor running at 2.4GHz. This processor has 2MB of L2 cache and uses 25W.  It includes VISION Premium Technology by AMD. This laptop comes installed with 4GB DDR3 memory and can be expanded to 8GB.

The screen is a 15.6″ LED-backlit TFT high-definition widescreen display with Toshiba TruBrite technology.  The native maximum resolution on the display is 1366×768 which lets you watch 720p HD content. The screen is driven by the ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 graphics card.  This has 256MB of dedicated memory and can support up to 1917MB of dynamically allocated shared graphics memory.  Shared memory slows your system down during graphically intensive processes like games.

For storage you get a 320GB Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive rotating at 5400RPM. That’s a big enough drive to store you music, digital photos, apps and more.  The optical drive is a multiformat DVD±RW/CD-RW drive with double-layer support.  For a little extra storage, or for easily transferring pictures from your digital camera you can use the media reader slot which supports  Secure Digital, Secure Digital High Capacity, miniSD, MultiMediaCard, Memory Stick and Memory Stick PRO formats.

For networking you get the standard combo of a 10/100 Ethernet LAN with an RJ-45 connector for your wired needs, and a built-in 802.11 b/g/n wireless LAN adapter.  It would be nice to have Gigabit, especially on a laptop of this price.  This laptop comes with a built-in webcam and microphone to make video chatting with Skype easy.

External ports include 3 high-speed USB 2.0 ports, 1 VGA port, 1 headphone and 1 microphone jack.   You also get a built-in webcam with microphone for easy video chatting, and a fusion finish in helios black.
