What would the graphics be like on this?
Spec: Graphics Processor / Vendor Intel HD Graphics Dynamic Video Memory Technology 5.0

Not a great CPU, the acers and compaqs at Tesco are better than this and cheaper

It's an i3 without hyper-threading so still has better performance per GHz than any AMD chip or a Core 2 Duo. More power efficient as well.

Asus build quality is good.

Good price. Good laptop.

Positive reviews for this on ebuyer.

I don't think this one has hyper-threading tech. Hyperthreading is only in core i3 or core 2 duo. this one is dual core albeit with higher cache and faster bus than the normal dual cores.

check this out comet.co.uk/p/L…934
comet's model is core i3.

Yep, that’s what WITHOUT generally means.

Not too bad for price but Dual Core needed for Windows 7 really and integrated graphics not too good probably 128mb as well but I guess for that price you will find it hard to get dedicated, but at least ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 would be nice.

time to go to specsavers.

CPU sucks on this. Better to pay < £50 more for i3 CPU

Banned

CPU not good for windows 7 - defeats its own purpose. You get what you pay for, another 50 big ones and you get an i3 which is a far superior CPU and has right architecture for W7........dont get the point in shirking out £50 for something you will keep for a few years.

amazon are doing the i3 version for £399 I am configuring for a friend now its a nice bit of kit. Not as sexy as my Alienware MX15 with I7 , Geforce 260, 6GB Ram and SSD drive! :P

good price good laptop

There seems to be much confusion about the Pentium P6xxx series. It’s an i3 with hyper-threading disabled and some other more arcane features also disabled.
For typical applications that will be run on this class of laptop the lack of hyper-threading is irrelevant as most of those apps will only use 1 or 2 cores and these Pentiums are dual core.

For detailed info try Intel - ark.intel.com/Com…663,

GOOD BRAND, GOOD DEAL.

Reading above comments makes me sad.

Why do some people feel a need to express their opinion on hardware they evidently have no clue about?

"amazon are doing the i3 version for £399 I am configuring for a friend now its a nice bit of kit."

Got myself an Acer5742 (370M) for £379.99 (recent Hotdeal that only got to 67 degrees). Interested in what you're configuring, could you give a rundown?

I'm still getting used to Windows 7. Seems much needs to be ran in 32-bit mode.

Also, when I run the Windows Experience Index, I get:

Processor 6.7
Memory 5.5
Graphics 3.9
Gaming Graphics 4.8
Primary HD 5.9

Here's a more detailed on:

I wonder others Index numbers for comparison please.

Do you have a link for this so I can give it a look over?

Thanks

Got this laptop, runs really well, hard disk is a little on the small side but can't complain about the price. Processor is great, no over heating (common on Asus), battery life is beyond what i expected and is the quietest laptop I have used in a long time. Runs both W7 and Fedora 16 with out a hitch which is more than can be said for my compaq which has a better spec.

9 out of 10 for all round value for money.
