ATI's XGP for a handful of euros
You probably remember ATI's XGP, also known as the Graphics Booster, and Fujitsu Siemens Amilo Sa 3650 notebook that was the only notebook that comes with the XGP port for ATI's XGP external graphics device. After browsing our price search engine we stumbled across this one and were quite surprised about the price.
Back when it was launched, this 13.3-inch notebook, coupled with Graphics Booster was enough to beat Nvidia's Geforce 9700M GTS in 3DMark. Back then, when it was first listed, you needed to pay as high as €1124, and now it has dropped down to €649 with the bundled Graphics Booster.
The Graphics Booster itself is an external HD 3870 graphics card, and it gives quite a decent boost to the notebooks HD 3200 integrated graphics. The rest of the specs for the notebook include Turion X2 Ultra ZM-86 working at 2.4GHz, 4GB of memory, 320GB of hard drive space, and almost everything that you would need from a 13.3-inch notebook.
This price that we are looking at now makes this notebook a great catch so you might want to hurry up until the stock lasts. You can find it listed here.
