I am close to buying the Chembook 2030 (from discountlaptops.com) -

14 inch screen WXGA,

1.6(7?)Sonoma,

1.25 GB of RAM

60GB 7200 RPM

Geforce go6400 with 64mb of ram and Turbocache that *should* put it up to 256.

All that and it says it weighs 4.9lbs with 6 cell battery.

Discount Laptop just released these benchmarks:

Chembook 2030 - 1.86Ghz Sonoma, 1.25Gb DDR RAM, 80Gb (5400 RPM), XP Pro SP2, Geforce Go6400 64mb Ram with Turbocache

3DMark 03 and 05 Results:

3065 - 3DMark 03

1061 - 3DMark 05

PerformanceTest Results:

275.1 - Pass Mark

412.3 - CPU Mark

340.2 - Memory Mark

394.1 - 3D Mark

175.8 - 2D Mark

Detailed Report

http://www.notebookdiscussions.com/showthread.php?t=114

The site claims that the 3dmark 03 scores are better then a Pentium M computer with a 128mb ATI 9700 (i.e. Chembook 2056 --> Compal CL56)

I haven't really kept up with benchmarks or mobile GPU's since 3dmark 2001 and back then it seemed that you needed >8000 to play everything decently. Any thoughts on these scores, the notebook, or the gpu would be appreciated. Thanks.

Pieter was in contact with DiscountLaptops.com for ChemBook2371 i think. I read a bit in their forum and it can be said that these guys know what they are talking about. Also they have nice pricings and great support.

Though i wouldn't recommend a 64MB card for these days anymore (even if it's a Go6xxx)

I'd say they exaggerate a little...

A mobile 9700 does easily almost 4000 and about 4500 wth o/c.

I perhaps made a mistake when buying go5700, but I hadn't searched enough info. But go7800 is to be the next one!
