help me with this laptop please

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

I can't even find this laptop on the Asus website?

So the i5-2410M chip has HD3000 graphics on it right?

Also on Intel's website it says the chip can go up to 2.9GHz with TurboBoost 2.0, so I can just enable this in the BIOS and enjoy a fast chip right?

Last question, if I play a 1080p movie (1920x1080) on the laptop (1600x900) and then send it to my 50" TV via HDMI, will I still see 1080p like quality? I realize that its the 1600x900 blowing up to fit the TV, but the source is still 1080p?

as for first question : not sure about the 3000 but the chip supports onboard graphics output in HD

Second question : honestly not sure

third question : if you output streaming of HD video through hdmi port on laptop to hd tv then video output will be in hd quality
hope that helps

Hey mate, that looks like a nice laptop and will fit your usage pattern. About your question:
1.Normally Turbo is activated by default, but if it's not you should be able to activate it in the BIOS. Even without Turbo that's a fast chip.
2.As long as the source is 1080p what will be rendered will be 1080p. Sure, on a 1600x900 the video will be scaled so it fits the screen, but it's not like the quality will be lost in order to fit it on the screen; it's more like the 1080p video is "forced" on that smaller screen. If you have a second 1080p display that's yet another thing - the second output isn't influenced by what is rendered on the first display so what is rendered on the TV is independent on the size or resolution of your laptop screen.
