If more power is needed at a particular time, the system can dynamically overclock the system.

Depending upon demand, or both cores can be overclocked to 2.6 GHz, or one of the core can be overclocked 2.9 GHz so you can give a new impulse to the processor performance, although this will only happen if the processor is pretty cool. With a TDP of 35 watts the processor is very frugal, and not have too much to develop the cooling system, which is certainly the front 13.3-inch laptop.

The processor includes an integrated graphics card, which is of great benefit to the system. Allows the laptop to do without a dedicated graphics card, which would be used in a lot of extra energy.
