Performance and Benchmarks
The Getac B300 is newly reconfigured, sporting the latest Intel Core i7-620LM processor over the older Core 2 Duo. These changes include a newer chipset, faster integrated graphics, and an overall better user experience. Looking back at the B300 configuration we reviewed almost two years ago, performance has almost doubled.
For normal daily use, the B300 holds up very well, browsing flash-heavy websites with ease and quickly loading office productivity applications. We did notice the shock mounted 5400 RPM drive causing some drop in system responsiveness though. We highly recommend users configuring this system go for one of the two SSD options, which would substantially boost overall speeds. Another item which we will discuss in the battery section, is the increase in system performance from the newer processor that has dinged the long battery life we found in the prior review.
