The XE300M22-A01US sports a Sandy Bridge-based dual-core Core i5 processor clocked at 2.5GHz, 4GB of RAM and a 16GB SSD. It won't wipe the floor with a high-end PC, but these days a fast dual-core, 4GB of RAM and an SSD is all you need for a system to feel snappy.

Prices floating around right now suggest we're looking at around $405, which is a little more than the older model.

With FPS gaming since the pre-Quake days, where you were insulted if you used a mouse to aim, he has been addicted to gaming and hardware ever since. Working in IT retail for 10 years gave him great experience with high-end, custom-built PCs. His addiction to GPU technology is unwavering, and with next-gen NVIDIA GPUs about to launch alongside 4K 144Hz HDR G-Sync gaming monitors and BFGDs (65-inch 4K 120Hz HDR G-Sync TVs) there has never been a time to be more excited about technology.
