The higher end models also feature Intel's TurboMemory Flash cache.

Graphics wise, it comes with Nvidia's GeForce 8600M GT graphics chip with 256MB of dedicated graphics memory. The laptop has a 15.4-inch 1280 x 800 widescreen display and a HDMI port for connection to a HDTV.

Two stereo speakers and an on-board sub-woofer are powered by Dolby Home Theatre technology, while the two included microphones are arranged in such a way to aid noise reduction.
