Specs include a third-generation 'Ivy Bridge' quad-core Intel Core i7 processor, the 2.3GHz i7-3615QM, to be precise; 8GB of 1600MHz DDR 3 memory; an 8GB Flash cache ahead of the machine's 1TB hard drive; and an Nvidia GeForce GT 650M graphics with 2GB of dedicated video Ram to drive the Chronos' 1920 x 1080 matte display.

The notebook supports Nvidia's Optimus technology to allow it to save power by using the i7's integrated graphics when it can.
