It is powered by the ULV processor, which is claimed to deliver high performance and low power consumption.

The Intel 945GME LCD/CRT controller provides the unit with optional touch screen and advanced optibond technology (AOT).

The nine-cell smart lithium-ion high-capacity battery offers 6.5 hours battery life and the backlight MTBF is 20,000 hours.
