The Akoya tasks that properly require the core i3 processor cuts a good figure: it worked really fast faster than the most Ultrabooks HD videos. Because the relatively high clock speed of 2.5 gigahertz and eight gigabytes of memory make noticeable. The most Ultrabooks bring it only to 1.8 gigahertz. Even at full load, the fan with maximum 0.8 sone remains pleasing soft.
