Its L2 cache memory is 3MB, and this is shared between the processor's two cores to reduce time exchanging information between the two. It has Intel's HD Boost technology which allows the processor to keep up with high-definition video or video editing, or other HD applications. It is also supposed to make more efficient use of power to prolong laptop battery life and of system memory bandwidth.

    Omar: That means the hardware can handle up to 6GB. So if you upgrade your Operating system to Windows 7 64-bit you'll be able to use all the 6GB of RAM. Nov 30, 10
