Reviews for the Acer TravelMate 7740G-434G50Mnss
Experiment. Acer attempts an unusual symbiosis between office- and multimedia-notebooks with the TravelMate 7740G. The 7740G is also equipped with a matte display and a suitable graphics card. Whether the attempt is successful or not, you can find out in this detailed review.

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 i5-430M is a middle class dual core CPU that features only 3 MB L3 Cache (compared to the I7-640M) and clocks between 2.26-2.53 GHz (Turbo Mode). Furthermore, VT-d, trusted Execution and AES features are missing in the 430M. Thanks to Hyperthreading, 4 threads can be processed simultaneously. An integrated graphics card (Intel HD Graphics with 500-733 MHz) and a DDR3 memory controller are also included in the package.
