looks good but cant figure out how the RM-75 compares to an intel cpu... seen some benchmarks that were not very flattering but these tend to be not comparable with real-world results... any ideas?

The 240M GT is about the most powerful mobile GPU you will find on a laptop of this price range and will trounce the 9300m gs which is essentially an ION le as used on many netbooks. This is as low as you can reasonably go for HD playack and is not great in games. As an ATI equivalent level GPU you would be looking around the HD 3470m level. As for the 240M GT you would be looking at the HD 4650m.

The Turion architecture was from the dark days at AMD when they were struggling to keep pace with Intel. The good news is the RM series was a big rework for AMD and they have done well considering where it came from. Heat and power usage are still an issue but performance was much improved. As for an Intel equivalent it's hard to say as in some areas AMD wins over Intel and vice versa. But you would probably be looking around the T5800 mark for everyday tasks.

As for the deal, well if its a desktop replacement that your after that has a home cinema twist than this is not bad. As a laptop in general I think the money could be spent better elsewhere. If you intend it for gaming, don't as you'll only be disappointed.

The graphics card is weak:
# Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce 9300M GS with 256MB Dediacted RAM

The GS label means that its really a rebranded GT from the older 8 series.

The 256mb dedicated is good, but not great. My laptop was a 6930g with different specs to the normal, and I got it for the same price and it is much more powerful: 9600m GT with 1gig dedicated. I'm not sure how the Core Duo P7450 compares to the Turion that your one has though, and I don't have blueray (or need it).

I too am Looking at this laptop, i have seen it on [url]www.dabs.com[/url] for £515.82, I have also uploaded it to here as this is the only place i have seen it mentioned. Here is the link:

http://www.dabs.com/products/acer-aspire-5738g-c2d-t6600-4gb-320gb-windows-7-home-premium-690B.html

I too eagerly await a reply so i know if it is a worthwhile buy.

JUST SEEN THIS AGAIN IS DOWN TO £399!!!! What do i do? Is the processor any good?
I will only use it for browsing and Bluray most of my stuff is on a external drive so 320 will be massive for what I need.

I bought a 7530G for £565 plus £20 for a bag and £50 for recovery discs and £63 for repairs last June. The specs were good and the laptop would be worth it as reliability is worth a lot. Can't say it is reliable as apart from being impossible to upgrade to Windows 7 without losing some preloaded (expensive to replace) software, sometimes the laptop just does not boot up. It is not as fast and smooth as my four year old Asus Z71 with an Nvidia 6600 100Mb graphics card running XP SP3 and the BluRay glitches too much. A lot of my software just will not run under Vista and the dealer refuses to accept that he misled me over the Windows 7 upgrade. The 7530G is back in its box, unused for about a month. Altogether a very bad retail experience. Test before you buy. Hope Mastercard can do thier stuff and get me a refund.
