Custom Laptop Info


"Verified By Intel" VBI Notebooks

Intel recently introduced a new notebook initiative called "VBI" or Verified By Intel®. These notebooks are not manufactured by Intel but are supported and warranted by them. Being Verified By Intel® means these products have met Intel’s verification testing for interchangeability of key notebook components as part of the Intel® Interchangeability Initiative.

The Intel® Interchangeability Initiative builds on the foundation established by the Common Building Blocks program to ensure ingredient suppliers are producing products according to a set of commonly adopted specifications. Today, the CBB program consists of 7 standardized parts that include Hard Drive, Optical drive, Keyboard, LCD Screen, battery, AC Adapter, and LCD "A Cover" panel. Having standards among these parts, not only allows you to share components from different models in a manufactures product line but also share them from different manufactures. For example, a CBB keyboard from a MSI notebook could be used in an ASUS model as a replacement if needed. The same goes for the LCD, the battery, AC Adapter and so on. This makes sourcing of these products much easier and simplifies handling of repairs.


Compal FL90 Notebook Barebone features Intel Core 2 Duo Socket P processors, integrated PCI Express NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT with 256MB dedicated video RAM. The barebone also features Intel Turbo Memory support, that lets your notebook to load up to twice faster frequently used applications.

Intel® Turbo Flash Memory and Robson Technology

Intel Turbo Flash Memory is an internal PCI Express device that uses new Robson technology to increase system responsiveness, make multi-tasking faster, and extend battery life. Robson non-volatile memory technology is designed to take advantage of the performance-accelerating capabilities of the Microsoft Vista operating system. These capabilities include:
  • Microsoft Superfetch - memory management technology, which significantly reduces disk read for typical user workloads by aggressively pre-fetching disk pages.
  • Microsoft ReadyBoost - technology, which allows users to increase the speed of frequently used applications by using system memory devices (Robson, USB drives, SD cards, Compact Flash, etc.) as a write-through virtual memory OS page cache.
  • Microsoft ReadyDrive - command set used by Windows Vista to cache small HDD writes to platform non-volatile memory (either as part of the platform or as part of a disk).

Although other forms of non-volatile memory such as USB drives can be used with these features, Robson's integrated design takes unique advantage of Vista's performance accelerators. As an internal device, Robson eliminates the need for end user configuration. In addition, PCI Express devices support higher bandwidths and consume less power than USB 2.0 devices.
