Reviews for the Acer Aspire 5942G-434G64Mn
Source: PC Advisor
It’s chunky and covered in go-faster stickers to attract Dixons grazers, but at heart the Acer 5942G is a powerhouse of a laptop, and well suited to modern gaming and sundry entertainment purposes. Construction is heavy but solid, and there’s enough connectivity to cover almost every need. It’s pricier than the ATI HD 5650-wielding Mesh Edge DX, but is a better made and ultimately better specified laptop that's unmatched at the price

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)

Intel Core i7: The Intel Core i7 for laptops is based on the LG1156 Core i5/i7 CPU for desktops. The base clock speed of the CPUs is relatively low, but because of a huge Turbo mode, the cores can dynamically overclock to up to 3.2 GHz (920XM). Therefore, the CPU can be as fast as high clocked dual-core CPUs (using single threaded applications) but still offer the advantage of 4 cores. Because of the large TDP of 45 W / 55 W, the CPU is only intended for large laptops.
720QM: The Core i7-720QM is the slowes Core i7 Quad Core in 2009 and clocks between 1.6 and 2.8 GHz (due to the Turbo Mode). Therefore, it combines the advantages of a slow quad core CPU with a fast single core one. Compared to the faster Core i7 mobile CPUs, the 720QM only features 6MB L3 Cache.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
