AMD Dynamic Switchable Graphics (PowerXPress 4.0 / BACON) vs. Nvidia Optimus

 

Switch it, baby! AMD is finally stepping up against Nvidia's well-established Optimus technology and throwing a counterpunch in the form of the PowerXPress 4.0. The first notebooks to showcase this new dynamic switchable graphics technology are...

The foundation has been set. AMD's graphics switching concept works reliably and in some ways even has a user-friendly interface. The system never crashed on account of BACON and the Catalyst Control Center (settings menu) has a smooth appealing look...

Review Dell Vostro 3450 Notebook

 

Family gathering. Now the last of the new Vostro notebooks, the Vostro 3450, also comes to us. The compact notebook is at the start with a 14 inch screen and AMD's new switchable graphics.

Design and surface materials, Good interface supply, Chiclet keyboard with light, Matt display surface, Good multimedia performance, Switchable AMD graphics, We quite like the series' design and the used materials made a good impression on us

Slightly yielding keyboard, Wobbly lid, Poor sound, Low contrast, Switchable AMD graphics doesn't (yet) work as perfectly as the Nvidia opponent's, If the Vostro 3450 is compared to its relatives and the comments in our forum, there appears to still be...

Dell Vostro 3450

 

Dell's latest Vostro small business laptop packs quite a punch in its 14-inch frame. A Core i5 Sandy Bridge processor and 4GB of RAM make sure you've got the power and memory you need for most day-to-day tasks, if not for high-end gaming and image...

Good looking, powerful small business laptop with plenty of features, USB 3.0 and eSATA make it relatively future proof

Battery life is only reasonable, average sound quality

Dell's done a good job with the latest version of the Vostro. It looks miles better than the average small business laptop, with a unique shape and a comfortable keyboard. The Sandy Bridge i5 combination works well, and gives you all the performance...

Great laptop and better aftersell services

 

I am not an advanced computer user but compared to all my past laptop and computers, Dell Vostro has been best in performance. I usually dont bother to write reviews but I am writing this because impaccable after sell service from Dell. When I bought...

Sells service, durability, functionality

I wish Dell choose antivirus like Kasperski to come along in laptop rather than inbuilt Mcafe (sometimes, slows computer and stubborn bugs are not killed sometimes by Mcafe)
