Reviews for the Gateway NV5929u

60% Gateway NV5929u 15.6-inch Budget Laptop PC
Source: Comp Reviews English
Gateway's NV5929u is certainly a good value for those looking at a higher performance general purpose system. It is probably one of the only laptops to come equipped with an Intel Core i5 class mobile processor with Turbo Boost for under $600. With that it mind, the system does have a number of quirks such as a display with limited viewing angles and an unusual keyboard and trackpad design that can make it difficult to use in some situations.

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.

430M:

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.
