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

Performance tests

The NX90Jq review unit came loaded with 64-bit Windows 7 Ultimate. It runs on a 1.73GHz Intel Core i7-720QM CPU and is a strong contender in its PCMark test class. Compared to other i7 models tested, only the 17in MacBook Pro had a better overall score, while in other tests it was an outright winner, Indeed, apart from my trouble with the trackpads, I found the NX90Jq to be a very snappy mover.

Longer bars are better

Graphics are driven by a Nvidia GeForce GT 335M GPU, a mid-range CUDA-capable card that copes well with most games and HD video with ease. Battery life isn’t great though. In tests, a full battery yielded only 75minutes. The Asus Power4Gear utility is in place for more economical use of the power, but running the NX90Jq in Entertainment mode provided only an extra 15minutes of battery life.
