  • Temperatures do not exceed 55 degrees Celsius under load after undervolting.
  • Not uncomfortable to keep on lap even under operation.

Performance

  • Boot time into functional Windows 7 x64 is approximately 1 minute.

Build Quality

  • Chassis is plastic and rigid, but does move and creek slightly under pressure. LCD hinge opens to maximum of about 140 degrees.
  • LCD screen is gloss with decent viewing angles. High range of brightness control available.
  • LCD hinge feels solid, and screen experiences almost no flex
  • No latch on LCD  lid, but laptop with screen closed is firm not
  • Plastic feels a bit cheap to touch, does not feel like a quality product
  • Chassis is a hollow, leading to good thermals but could really have been made thinner
  • Big power plug that secures well to the laptop
  • No key flex, but keys feel mushy

Acoustics

  • Keyboard is quiet to type on
  • Some hard drive chatter can be heard even with fan off, but is relatively quiet during seek

AMD Turion CPU Undervolt for your Laptop with Windows


It is now possible to undervolt your AMD Turion Processor under Windows Vista x32/x64 (even Windows 7). This should work for Windows XP as well.

This works if you have an AMD Turion CPU, GRIFFIN codename.

Benefits

1. Reduce fan noise
2. Reduce CPU heat
3. Increase laptop battery life

Instructions

1. Obtain PumaStateCtrl for your OS
2. Unpack and modify config.xml as per instructions in html help file
3. Save the config.xml file and run the .exe file.
4. Verify voltages and system stability.
5. (Optional) Run as executable as Automatic Service. Not shown in this video.

Personally tested to work on HP Tablet TX2524CA, RM-70 processor. Boots. Stability not thoroughly tested.
P-states:
2GHz @ 1.0125V (from 1.075V)
1GHz @ 0.7625 V (from 0.950V)
.5GHz @ 0.750V (from 0.800V)

Recommendations

Run PumaStateCtrl as a service in Windows Vista to retain settings upon standby/return from standby. The instructions of how to do this are located in the TabletPCReview.com thread.

Notes

* 0.750V is the lowest voltage this program can undervolt to
* to run as service without the Service messagebox popup, make sure the service is not allowed to interact with your desktop when you create it.

Pokémon –> Moemon? Ultimate Skin Mod?

The ultimate Pokémon mod… Moemon?!
Don’t have too much information at the moment. Looks to be a full skin mod of the original FireRed/LeafGreen versions of Pokémon in development, with truly moe characters.

Since I don’t understand Japanese, I have no idea how you can obtain this mod. There seems to be incomplete English translations floating around the tubes. It also seems that not all the Pokémon have been skinned yet, so this is an incomplete mod. The video linked to this site.

Anyways, some more relevant pictures I found on the internets for your interests…
