The Cerebra was the thinnest notebook in the shootout. It was
also lighter than some of the other notebooks in its category. It has a PIII/650
MHz processor with 64 MB RAM. Interestingly, it has a standard Socket 370
processor, and not the mobile version found in most notebooks today. The
notebook has a Silicon Motion Lynx3D card with 6.5 MB VRAM, which gives a
maximum resolution of 1,600×1,200 with 32-bit color depth.

Other
features include a built-in modem and one PCMCIA slot. It also has an IR port
and a USB port for external peripherals. It can be connected to a TV or
projector through its S-Video port. One problem we faced was with the keyboard
layout. Many of its keys are oddly placed and take some time to get used to it.
Its RAM is user-upgradable.

The notebook gave the highest score in Business Winstone, at
22.6, making it ideal for most productivity applications. However, in battery
backup it only managed 2:40 hours and took 4:22 hours to recharge the battery.
The notebook could have done better with its sound quality, which is average and
the volume is not high enough.
