    Can someone PLEASE PLEASE get me some info as to what the HECK the details on this are??? CF-31ATAAX2M

    Also, is this this the one with the 5 hour batter or the 11 hour battery?

    Thanks!

    EDIT: I looked at Panys website and it looks like this model is the 520M model (2.4GHz i5) and in intel graphics mode it runs for 11 Hours and in ATI graphics mode it runs for 5 hours... How the HELL does a laptop have 2 video cards?!?!?!

    There are 3 types of CF-31: Basic, Standard, Performance (though all 3 might not be available in the US, but there are 3 versions of the CF-31).

    The performance model has the standard Intel i5 chipset (with integrated Intel graphics) and the discreet ATI graphics card. The ATI graphics are a lot more powerful and can do a lot more work then the Intel card, but obviously consumes a lot more power for this, hence the reduction in battery life. You can switch between the 2 graphics cards in the BIOS.

    The standard and basic models of CF-31 do not have the ATI graphics, basic has an i3 chipset and standard has an i5 chipset if I remember right.

    Perfect! This is the answer I was looking for about the i5 models.

    Thanks! :)

    The i3 CF-31 uses the lightweight "6" cell battery and the i5 units use the more powerful 9 cell battery. In the BIOS of the high end model you can select either the ATI 5650 HD GPU or the Shard Intel Graphics Card.
