Intel wont like this: the Wind12 "U200" is an intel celeron but the "U210" is AMD. LOL. Same clamshell. Different CPU. AMD gets the one-up-manship.

What's the IGP on this? And what wattage do the chip and chipset consume?

Fail with that IGP

That IGP is a "remake" (on a modern low-power process) of the original old 1200 series I think, so it should be better on power saving but not better performance. Pretty ok for an ultraportable tho...

It's my current IGP, better than Intel's offering but the wind would have sold like hot cakes if they dropped a 780G with a HD 3200
