As the E6400's 3DMark06 scores show, it's no graphics powerhouse, but then this isn't the kind of machine someone who demands the peak of GPU performance is likely to buy in any case.

Ditto the processor's performance, which yields results exactly what you'd expect from one of the lower-end of latest 'Penryn' 45nm mobile Core 2 Duo CPUs. Again, decent performance for office and internet apps, with plenty of extra to draw up if you need to fire up Photoshop or somesuch. If you think you'll need more, it's easy to spec up a faster CPU, up to the limits of your budget.
Plenty of ports
