|Processor Speed:||2.4 GHz||Processor Type:||Core i7 (I7-3635QM)|
|Details:||This model is powered by a 22 nm, 64-bit Intel Mobile Core i7 “Ivy Bridge” (I7-3635QM) processor which includes four independent processor “cores” on a single silicon chip. Each core has a dedicated 256k level 2 cache, shares 6 MB of level 3 cache, and has an integrated memory controller (dual channel).
This system also supports “Turbo Boost 2.0” — which “automatically increases the speed of the active cores” to improve performance when needed (up to 3.4 GHz for this model) — and “Hyper Threading” — which allows the system to recognize eight total “cores” or “threads” (four real and four virtual).

|Turbo Boost:||3.4 GHz||Custom Speeds:||2.7 GHz, 2.8 GHz*|
|Details:||*This model also could be configured with two different custom processor options.
One option is a 2.7 GHz Quad Core Core i7 (I7-3740QM) processor with a 6 MB level 3 cache for an extra US$100. This processor supports “Turbo Boost 2.0” up to 3.7 GHz. The other option is a 2.8 GHz Quad Core Core i7 (I7-3840QM) processor with an 8 MB level 3 cache for an extra US$350. This processor supports “Turbo Boost 2.0” up to 3.8 GHz. Both processors support “Hyper Threading” with eight virtual cores or “threads.”

|Motherboard RAM:||8 GB*||RAM Slots:||None|
|Details:||*There are no RAM slots. 8 GB of RAM is onboard. It could be upgraded to 16 GB at the time of purchase as a US$200 option, but it cannot be upgraded later.|
|Video Card:||GeForce GT 650M*||VRAM Type:||GDDR5|
|Details:||*This system has dual graphics processors — a NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M with 1 GB of dedicated GDDR5 SDRAM and Intel HD Graphics 4000 with memory shared with the system. The system automatically switches between graphics systems based on use (when applications use OpenGL, Core Graphics or other graphically demanding technologies, the system will use the dedicated graphics card, otherwise it will use Intel HD Graphics to conserve battery life).

|Standard VRAM:||1 GB*||Maximum VRAM:||1 GB*|
|Details:||The NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M graphics processor has 1 GB of dedicated GDDR5 memory. The “integrated” Intel HD Graphics 4000 graphics processor shares memory with the system.|

|Details:||*This model supports a simultaneous maximum resolution up to 2560×1600 on two external displays via Thunderbolt. Alternately, it can support a single display up to 2560×1600 via Thunderbolt and a single display up to 1920×1200 via HDMI. Although it can theoretically power all three external displays, as confirmed by a helpful reader, it runs too hot with three displays connected.
