Performance and Benchmarks
The U41JF has a respectable suite of components; the Core i3-380M processor runs at a relatively high frequency of 2.53GHz and provides more than enough power for everyday tasks. 4GB of RAM allows multiple programs to be used at once. The 500GB 5400RPM Western Digital hard drive is on the slow side, but is whisper quiet and has tons of space for media.
The only real stand-out component is the Nvidia GeForce GT 425M 1GB graphics card, which performed very well in our benchmarks and is more than capable of playing the latest games.
The icing on the cake is Nvidia’s Optimus technology, which allows the notebook to automatically switch between the powerful Nvidia graphics card and the power-saving integrated Intel HD graphics on the fly, depending on what the user is doing.
