Manufacturer's Description

Enjoy comprehensive computing and gaming on the move with the PC Specialist Cosmos II RS-840 Gaming Laptop.

Performance processing

The Cosmos II is powered by an Intel® Core™ i5-4200M Processor that delivers all the performance you need for fast, responsive computing thanks to a 3.10 GHz clock speed and four-way multithreading.

An ample 8 GB of Kingston RAM provides smooth multitasking and aids performance when running demanding software and games so you can explore MMOs with friends or edit media on the move without worry.

Dedicated graphics

Graphics come courtesy of a dedicated NVIDIA GeForce 840M graphics card that offers impressive high definition videos along with entry-level gaming capabilities that’s perfect for enjoying films and games while away from home.

The LED screen features a matte coating so you can work and play outside or in direct sunlight without excessive screen glare.

Plenty of storage

A large 1 TB hard drive provides plenty of space for games, documents and media while backing up is easy thanks to Windows Cloud integration and three USB 3.0 ports that offer fast data transfer to external storage.

There’s also a handy eSATA/USB 3.0 dual port that can be used to quickly share data between the laptop and other computer’s internal drives; perfect for adding your old PC’s files to your new laptop.

Gaming with Windows

Windows 8.1 is the perfect OS for serious gaming. Pared back and less demanding on resources than previous editions, it lets your components work on what’s important.

While the familiar start button and traditional desktop remain, the Start Screen now features live tiles. These handy squares show live updates, messages and notifications for all your most used content, including social media, emails, news and more.

There are plenty more functional updates throughout Windows 8.1, including adjustable four-way multitasking and a completely reworked search bar; simply start typing to search your computer, connected storage, Cloud and web.
