this software (centrino harware control) works well on my 259.
once u installed it, check the enable dynamic switching then u can change the multiplier as u wish...after that u will see that ur computer is going faster than before.
my 259 is too heavy to carry around and this one is even HEAVIER...what bother me most about the 259 is that it gets really warm on the right side next to the touchpad. in addition, the chassis looks and feels cheap...other then these issues, the computer works perfectly fine.
download this freeware to check specification of the pc
to test ur computer cpu or graphics, memory
