The Power of One Brief: Top reasons to choose HP BladeSystem

Benchmarks: 11in sub-notebooks

It's not as quick as the 13.3in model - a slower CPU and slower SSD see to that - but it's snappy enough and it was well able to handle the productivity, comms and picture editing tasks I put it to. Better, in fact, than my old, first-generation 13.3in Air, which had a 1.6GHz Core 2 Duo, but Intel graphics. It's clear how much of a difference getting a GPU, even an integrated one, from Nvidia makes, more than compensating for the slower CPU.
