Great article, just bought an i7-3610QM, NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M, 4GB Ram and 750GB HDD and i can say im really amazed by its power this laptop is really good for gaming and multitasking, don't get a low expectation about it's gaming power because of what is said on the review because after removing some resource eating programs that come with the laptop i run games like Bioshock Infinite and Rome Total War 2, at crancked up graphics, with fluid speed and no lag i'm even getting amazed how such a cheap laptop can play Bioshock Infinite, crancked up at full resolution, during massive battles it runs better than a console and with more gorgeous graphics. A must buy if you want power for a really affordable price.
Great review. The laptop is amazing, particularly for gaming, as long as one keeps the resolution set at 1366x768 and maybe disabling/reducing some graphics options (i.e. using (or just turning off, sometimes the effect is barely noticeable) SSAO instead of HBAO or using FXAA instead of MSAA). Only complaint is the standard fare amount of crapware that Acer dumps on it, however, this is easily remedied in a short amount of time.
The ideal multimedia laptop? An Ivy Bridge quad-core CPU and a GeForce GT640M ensure the Aspire V3-571G has a good performance. Our comprehensive review provides detailed information about its advantages and disadvantages.
