Had my M5 for a year now, it plays game brilliantly on medium settings for a £500 laptop. I have overclocked the GT640 for benchmarking purposes which gives an average 10% performance increase.
Should last me for at least another 4 years. Only downsides are that it gets very hot if not placed on the right surface. Also the on/off switch is at the front of the laptop and is easy to catch with your thumb when dragging things with the touchpad turning it off.
Had one of these for almost a year - brilliant for the money! Replaced my desktop with ease. Gets hot on base running games after an hour or so but a laptop cooler sorts it out and makes it more comfortable on the lap. USB ports on rear are a drag but easy to live with. Light reliable and battery life has not decreased significantly. Quality system, shame about Windows 8 though - it sucks!
Ultra(Gaming)Book. Acer equips their Ultrabook with a 20.6 millimeter (0.81 inches) thick aluminum chassis and a Kepler GT640M GPU suitable for gaming. Does this combination work and do the temperatures remain within acceptable limits? Read our review to find out.
