SIGMA 750

Computer Shopper (August '00)

Presentation

The Sigma 750 occupies the same stylish silver chassis as the cheaper Celeron-based Sigma 433 with no indication until they are turned on that this is substantially faster and more expensive.

Configuration

With Pentium III 750, 192Mb Ram and 8Mb ATI graphics chip the Sigma 750 is one of the top performers this month, although at 12Gb the hard drive is a more modest inclusion.

Features

Like the lower performance Sigma 433, the Sigma 750 comes complete with 14.1' screen, integrated 56K modem, TV-out port and battery-life indicator as well as an eight-speed DVD drive.

Summary

At 600 more than the Sigma 433, the 750 offers significantly higher performance as well as DVD capability. If you're a performance junkie, this additional cost may seem worthwhile, but if you're just after an attractive workhorse notebook with a generous screen then the Sigma 433 will suffice.
