The processor contains an Intel Graphics Media Accelerator for 3D graphics and HD video streaming. The integrated image signal processor boasts advanced imaging capability so that images can be captured even in dim conditions. The processor is optimized for low power consumption, and this means the battery lasts longer. It has better battery life than products of the same class.
