Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5740-333G25Mi

80% Acer Aspire 5740G (6979)
Source: Laptop Mag English
This 15.6-inch notebook provides powerful graphics, zippy Core i5 performance, and strong audio for less than the competition. Gamers on a budget would do well to consider the $749 Acer Aspire 5740G-6979. While the design of this notebook doesn’t thrill, multimedia aficionados and impoverished fraggers looking for an affordable mainstream system with powerful graphics can’t do much better than this.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) HD Graphics: Onboard graphics card that is built in the new Arrandale CPUs (Core i3 / i5 / i7 Dual Cores). Depending on the model and Turbo Boost, the GMA HD is clocked between 166 and 766 MHz.

Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.

330M:

The Core i3-330M is a slower clocked 350M and therefore also lacks the Turbo Boost feature and clocks with max. 2.13 GHz. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (GMA HD 3150) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.
