Acer - Acer Extensa 5220-201G08Mi
The speed that the microprocessor executes each instruction or each vibration of the clock. The CPU requires a fixed number of clock ticks, or cycles, to execute each instruction. The faster the clocks rate, the faster the CPU, or the faster it can execute instructions. Clock Speeds are usually determined in MHz, 1 MHz representing 1 million cycles per second, or in GHz, 1 GHz representing 1 thousand million cycles per second. The higher the CPU speed, the better a computer will perform.
A family of processors is a group of processors produced by one company over a short period of time e.g. Intel Pentium processors.
Intel Celeron Mobile
The model number for the processor in a computer.
Processor cache level
The chipset connects the microprocessor to the rest of the motherboard.
Intel GL960 Express
Processor front side bus
A computer communications interface used to connect the processor to the rest of the computer, except the cache (and possibly other processors).
Internal memory type
The type of internal memory such as RAM, GDDR5.
Memory layout (slots x size)
1 x 1 GB
Total storage capacity
Hard drive interface
The way that a hard disk drive (HDD) is connected to the rest of the computer through a 'bus' such as ATA or SCSI.
Hard drive speed
The rotational speed of a hard disk expressed in rotations per minute. The faster the better.
Size of the display for this product, measured diagonally, usually in inches.
39.12 cm (15.4")
The number of distinct pixels in each dimension that can be displayed. It is usually quoted as width × height, with the units in pixels: for example, "1024 × 768" means the width is 1024 pixels and the height is 768 pixels. The higher the number of pixels, the sharper the image.
1280 x 800 pixels
Discrete graphics adapter model
Intel GMA X3100
Maximum graphics adapter memory
Graphics memory is determined by the (graphic) processor. Graphics memory is often shared with system memory so that it varies depending on the amount of system memory installed and system load.
High Definition Audio
Number of built-in speakers
Bluetooth is a low-power radio technology developed to replace the cables and wires currently used to link or connect electronic devices such as personal computers, printers, and a wide variety of handheld devices including mobile phones. Because it uses radio-wave connectivity, a Bluetooth-enabled device has a constant, established connection to whatever browser it uses. This saves the user the trouble of logging on to check for emails or news updates, for example.
Ports & interfaces
USB 2.0 ports quantity
Number of USB 2.0 ports (connecting interfaces) in the device. USB 2.0 was released in April 2000 (now called "Hi-Speed"), adding higher maximum signaling rate of 480 Mbit/s (effective throughput up to 35 MB/s or 280 Mbit/s), USB 2.0 ports are usually black.
VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity
Digital Visual Interface (DVI) is a video display interface to connect a video source to a display device, such as a computer monitor.
Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports
Firewire (IEEE 1394) ports
Number of IEEE 1394/FireWire ports (connecting interfaces) in the device. The IEEE 1394 interface is a serial bus interface standard for high-speed communications and isochronous real-time data transfer. It was developed in the late 1980s and early 1990s by Apple, who called it FireWire. The 1394 interface is comparable to USB though USB has more market share. Apple first included FireWire in some of its 1999 models, and most Apple computers since the year 2000 have included FireWire ports, though, as of 2013, only the 800 version (IEEE-1394b).
S/PDIF out port
Ports & interfaces
Connector used to attach a mobile electronic device simultaneously to multiple external resources. The dock connector will typically carry a variety of signals and power, through a single connector, to simplify the process of docking the mobile device. A dock connector may be embedded in a mechanical fixture used to support or align the mobile device or may be at the end of a cable.
Port for an ExpressCard, which contain electronic circuitry and connectors to which external devices (peripherals) can be connected. The ExpressCard standard has replaced the PC Card (also known as PCMCIA) standard and has been used since 2006.
CardBus PCMCIA slots quantity
CardBus PCMCIA slot type
A smart card, chip card, or integrated circuit card (ICC) is any pocket-sized card with embedded integrated circuits. Smart cards can provide identification, authentication, data storage and application processing. Smart card slots can be found in various electronic devices e.g. thin clients.
Modem (RJ-11) ports
TV out port
Description of TV Out port
Keyboard function keys
Operating system installed
Type of operating system on a device e.g. IOS on Apple devices, Android for mobile devices.
Windows Vista Home Basic
Software distributed with another product such as a piece of computer hardware or other electronic device, or a group of software packages which are sold together. A software suite is an example of bundled software, as is software which is pre-installed on a new computer.
Acer Empowering Technology (Acer eNet, ePower, ePresentation, eDataSecurity, eLock, eRecovery, eSettings, ePerformance Management), Acer GridVista, Acer Launch Manager, Adobe Reader, Cyberlink PowerDVD, Microsoft Office Ready 2007, NTI CD Maker / NTI Shadow
Number of battery cells
Battery life (max)
Cable lock slot
Holes on the edge of devices through which a cable lock can be passed, so the device can be locked to a desk etc.
Password protection type
Weight & dimensions
Weight of the product without packaging (net weight). If possible, the net weight is given including standard accessories and supplies. Please note that sometimes the manufacturer leaves out the weight of accessories and/or supplies.
Technology that communicates with other devices without a physical connection e.g. radio, WiFi.
Infrared data port
A data port that uses infra-red data association (irDA) as the standard for wireless communications between computer and mobile phone devices. For example, to update the phone list on your irDA-enabled PC, you would line up the infra-red ports on each device and then transfer the phone information to your PC. This is a wireless transfer, so you don't need a cable or extra software.
TV in port
The description of display that can includes display type, resolution, size etc.
Device inside a computer, cash register etc. that enables it to communicate over a network.
