    Windows Experience Index

    Here we see the Windows 7 Windows Experience Index. We see that the Desktop Graphics score received the lowest score of 3.9 and is deemed by Windows as the bottleneck of this notebook. It seems that the Optimus technology kicked in to give the Gaming Graphics test access to the NVIDIA G210m graphics to boost performance. Whereas the Desktop Graphics used by Aero appeared to just use the integrated Intel graphics as that is all that is needed to use Aero.
