Reviews for the Acer Extensa 5620G
Source: Pocket Lint
The Acer Extensa 5620 won't blow you away in the style or performance stakes, but for less than £400 (inc. VAT) it's good enough for every day tasks, especially if your needs are basic, but don't consider it if you're looking for a multimedia machine.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 2400 XT: This is a DirectX 10 graphic card from ATI and direct competitor to the NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GT graphic card for laptops. Furthermore, the chip ought to be a higher clocked version of the normal Mobility Radeon HD 2400.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
Intel Core 2 Duo: This is the Core Duo and Core Solo successor with a longer pipeline and 5-20% more speed without more power consumption. As an addition to the Core Duo design there exists a fourth decoder, an amplified SSE-unit and an additional arithmetical logical unit (ALU).
The Core 2 Duo for laptops is identical to the desktop Core 2 Duo processors but the notebook-processors work with lower voltages (0.95 to 1188 Volt) and a lower Frontside bus clock (1066 vs 667 MHz). The performance of equally clocked notebooks is 20-25% lower than Desktop PCs because of the lower Frontside bus clock and the slower hard disks.
Slow clocked dual core processor based on the Merom-2M core without virtualization functions.
