New in Windows 7, Jump Lists take you right to the documents, pictures, songs, or websites you turn to each day. To open a Jump List, just right-click a program icon
on the Windows 7 taskbar. (You'll also find them on the Start menu.) What you see in a Jump List depends entirely on the program. The Jump List for Internet
Explorer 8 shows frequently-viewed websites. Windows Media Player 12 lists commonly-played tunes. Your Jump List missing a favorite? You can "pin" whatever
files you like there. Jump Lists don't just show shortcuts to files. Sometimes they also provide quick access to commands for things like composing new eâ mail
messages or playing music.
Improved Windows Taskbar
In Windows 7 you can "pin" favorite programs anywhere on the taskbar for easy access. Not crazy about the icon lineup? Now you can rearrange them any way you
like by clicking and dragging. Finally, there are new ways to preview windows. Point to a taskbar icon to see a thumbnail preview of open files or programs. Then,
move your mouse over a thumbnail to preview the window full-screen. You can even close windows from the thumbnail previews--a big time saver.
Ever need to cut through a cluttered desktop and quickly focus on a single window? Just click a pane and give your mouse a shake. Every open window except that
one instantly disappears. Jiggle again--and your windows are back.
Intel Core 2 Duo Processing Power
The Intel Core 2 Duo T6600 processor has a 2.2 GHz processor speed, fast 800 MHz front-side bus (FSB), and 2 MB L2 cache. (An L2, or secondary, cache
temporarily stores data; and a larger L2 cache can help speed up your system's performance. The FSB carries data between the CPU and RAM, and a faster front-
side bus will deliver better overall performance.) It's optimized for multitasking and is ready to support the Microsoft Windows 7 operating system.
Intel Core 2 Duo Processor: The Dual-Core that Delivers Impressive Power While Saving Energy
Featuring dual cores that power through the most intensive tasks, the Intel Core 2 Duo processor lets you surf the web,
download content, connect with friends--and do it all with ease. Intel Advanced Smart Cache technology minimizes wait
times by allocating more access to frequently used data to the processing core that needs it most. Intel's power-saving
capabilities enable fast, cool-running performance even in a compact form factor.
Intel Centrino Processor Technology: Advanced Technology for Connected Mobility
Intel Centrino processor technology combines advanced dual-core responsiveness, wireless networking, and exclusive
power management features designed for stay-away-longer battery life. Two high-performance processing cores let you run
multiple demanding applications simultaneously--download HD video while you retouch photos, remix a soundtrack or
enjoy casual gaming. Intel HD Boost dramatically accelerates multimedia processing for more exhilarating high-definition
video and gaming experiences.
