On most notebooks, all sound frequencies originate from small onboard speakers. The resulting audio comes from a single source and lacks distinctiveness.

Splendid technology delivers vibrant visuals to satisfy the most demanding viewing standards. It fine-tunes display properties based on application, adjusting colour gamut and accuracy.
