Reviews for the Acer eMachines E725
So how is Acer's revival of eMachines going? Not bad actually, although there are a few kinks to address. The E725 is a pretty decent piece of kit and it performs admirably in all benchmarks. Build quality could have been better. The shell shocked battery just ruins the general impression, and the keyboard print job could have been a bit better too. The rest of the chassis feels quite sturdy, and it's no worse than low-end Acers or models from other vendors for that matter. It looks a lot better than previous eMachines models, and if Acer decides to keep this value brand alive, future models should be even better. Either is a pretty good choice, they're affordable and thanks to Intel's latest Penryn based Pentium, performance is impressive for this price point.

Intel Graphics Media Accelerator (GMA) 4500M: The graphics core of the Intel GL40 and GS40 chipset features a slower clocked GMA 4500MHD (400 versus 533 MHz). Because of the slower core speed, full Blu-Ray Logo support is not given and the gaming performance is a bit worse.
Only some 3D games with very low demands are playable with these cards.
Intel Pentium Dual Core: The return of the name Pentium, though it is a Yonah core. In fact, it is a double Core processor with a very good relation of performance to current consumption.
T3400: Merom based entry-level Pentium Dual-Core processor with some reduced power saving functions compared to Core 2 Duo CPUs.» Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Processsors.
