The Pegasus relies on an integrated Intel graphics chip, so as you would expect, its 3D performance is pretty poor. It managed to crawl its way to a lowly score of just 170 in 3DMark ,so even with the detail cranked all the way down it's going to struggle to produce anything approaching an acceptable frame rate in the latest 3D games.
With more regular tasks, its performance isn't too bad -- it's not stunning either. It managed to rack up a score of 3,259 in PCMark 05, but we think it could have performed better if it had more than the rather meagre 1GB helping of RAM. Still, you'd hardly expect top-notch gaming performance or blistering overall speed from this type of ultraportable machine.
What you would expect, though, is a decent keyboard. The one here feels quite flimsy as it flexes in the middle when you apply pressure. In fact, we actually had the top of one key pop off, although it did easily click back into place and stay there for the rest of the review period.
Our model had Wi-Fi but no Bluetooth support, although you can add this for an extra £21 when you're purchasing the machine.
The Pegasus is a respectable ultraportable laptop, but there's nothing exceptional here to make us really want to recommend it. While its battery life is reasonably good and the Instant On feature is a useful addition, we weren't particularly impressed by its overall performance or build quality.
