So, it's new Core 2 Duo processors and 802.11n all round? Not quite - some models come with 802.11a/b/g rather than the next-gen wireless networking technology. Standard features include drop-sensitive hard drive protection; a 15.4in, 1280 x 800 display; up to 120GB of hard drive storage and 2GB of DDR 2 memory; a 1.3-megapixel webcam; Bluetooth; and a fingerprint sensor for data encryption and log-on security.

Top-end models contain AMD's ATI Radeon Mobility HD 2300, which, despite its name, isn't a DirectX 10 chip, like the HD 2400 and HD 2600 series of mobile GPUs.
