Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5740G-6395
Source: Comp Reviews
Acer's Aspire 5740G-6395 is an amazing value for those wanting to get a thin and light laptop system with a dedicated graphics processor for light PC gaming and HD video watching. Performance is strong thanks to the Core i5 processor that will work well for all those who aren't looking at something like digital video editing. Graphics are fast enough for playing the latest 3D games.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5650: Middle class DirectX 11 capable graphics card with a power consumption of about 15-20 Watt. Supports Eyevision (up to 6 monitors)
Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards.
The Core i5-520M has only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-640M) and clocks between 2.4-2.93 GHz (Turbo Mode). 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.
