Rather interestingly the Quest Roma MT 37 is using the ATI Radeon Xpress 200P chipset, along with the Mobility Radeon X700 graphics chipset – just like the Acer Ferrari 4000 in fact. This should be fast enough for most games at 1,024 x 768 and with 128MB of graphics memory to back it up, you won’t have any problems storing textures either. The 15.4in widescreen display has a native resolution of 1,280 x 800, while also sporting a high contrast glossy coating. This is great for watching films or playing games, but it’s not so good if you want to use your laptop outdoors in the sunshine – but then there’s not much of that in the UK anyway.
But the features don’t stop here, as the Quest Roma MT 37 comes with both 802.11b/g wireless and Bluetooth built in. Further to that you get 10/100Mbit Ethernet and a 56k V.90 dial up modem, so there are plenty of connectivity options.
The Ethernet and modem connectors are fitted on the left hand side of the chassis along with two USB 2.0 ports and the optical drive. The right hand side features a further two USB 2.0 ports, a D-SUB connector, S-Video out, a PC Card slot and a multi format card reader for MMC, SD and MemoryStick cards. Finally around the front are the headphone and microphone sockets alongside a four-pin FireWire connector and an IrDA window. The headphone connector also doubles up as an optical S/PDIF out.
There is a set of blue LEDs on the right hand corner indicating if the wireless is on or off, hard drive activity, key locks and a charge light. Above the keyboard is a row of buttons which from left to right are the power button, media player button, Bluetooth on/off, web browser, email and wireless on/off.
