The 4810T comeS with a 1366 x 768 pixel (720p HD) 14 inch LED backlit screen, and is dressed in a dark grey color. It does look like it means business, and the specs do add to that suspicion.

Intel's Core Solo processor does skimp a bit on performance compared to the new Core 2 Duos, but power consumption is greatly reduced. Despite the processor, it managed a PC Mark score of 2057; higher than the average netbook score of 1400 to 1500 with the usual 1.6Ghz Atom processor. In terms of graphics capabilities, the Intel graphics are a bit of a letdown when compared to the overall system performance. The 3D Mark score of 574 means that gaming won't come within a mile of this machine. But you do get an HDMI port to connect it to a flat panel1V. Playing full HD files is a stretch, but 720p HD files are easily doable.
