|Chipset||Mobile Intel QM57 Express Chipset|
|Processors||Intel Dual-Core Processors:|
NOTE: Intel’s numbering is not a measurement of higher performance. Processor speed denotes maximum performance mode; processor will run at lower speeds in battery optimization mode.
|Memory||Standard: DDR3 PC3-10600 SDRAM (1333 MHz, 4096MB|
Maximum : Upgradeable to 8192MB with 4096MB SODIMMs in slots 1 and 2
Dual-channel: Maximized dual-channel performance requires SODIMMs of the same size and speed in both memory slots.
NOTE: * With some processors, memory bus runs at a maximum of 1066 MHz
|Graphics||Models with integrated graphics:|
External: Up to 32-bit per pixel color depth
DisplayPort supports resolutions up to 2560 x 1600, 30-bit color depth at 60 Hz, and full HD (1920 x 1080) monitors, 24-bit color depth at 120 Hz
VGA port supports resolutions up to 2048 x 1536 at 75 Hz, and lower resolutions at up to 100 Hz
DVI-D (single link) video signal available through DVI port in optional HP Docking Station (sold separately) supports resolutions up to 1600 x 1200 at both full and reduced blanking, and 1920 x 1200 at reduced blanking
NOTE: Resolutions are dependent upon monitor capability, and resolution and color depth settings.
|Keyboard||The HP spill-resistant keyboard is designed using a thin layer of Mylar film under the keyboard and a drain system that funnels fluid through a hole in the bottom of the notebook. This minimizes the risk of damage to sensitive components underneath. The 101/102-key compatible keyboard features an industry standard, full-pitch key layout with desktop keyboard features, such as the isolated inverted-T cursor control keys, editing keys, both left and right control and alt keys, and 12 function keys. U.S. and International key layouts are available. Includes an integrated numeric keypad, hotkeys for instant access to power conservation, brightness, and other features. It has 19.05 x 19.05 mm key pitch (center-to-center spacing) and 2.5 mm stroke.|

The Intel i5-540M, which uses the codename, Arrandale. While performance greatly depends on the tasks being run, here are the common considerations when researching CPUs:
Speed: At a clock speed of 2.53 GHz, it is , 0.13 GHz slower than average for a laptop processor when compared to other laptop processors in the Core i5 series.
Cores: It is a dual-core processor, meaning that it can devote power to multiple applications, but will not perform as well as similar processors with more cores.
Cache: Its 3 MB cache is about average sized for CPU caches in the Core i5 series.
