According to www.notebookcheck.net, GT 640M are 1 step above HD 7730M, leading in two benchmark. Try google for the rest yourself... Getting a new notebook? What model?

If I were you, I'll get the 15R since I love laptop with large screen. GT 640M only few mark ahead of HD 7730M. But if you really tied to the benchmark at above link, go pick 14R and you will have smaller screen size. Why not take Asus or Lenovo laptop? Asus have a lot of choice. But Dell does give the best service.


Added on May 19, 2012, 2:02 amI totally forgot that GT 640M have Optimus, PhysX, Verde Drivers, CUDA, 3D Vision, 3DTV Play. Optimus and PhysX are interesting feature. Google to read more icon_rolleyes.gif I don't know if GT 640M driver have FXAA. If yes, it's better to get Nvidia laptop. FXAA and adaptive v-sync are really helpful in mid range and low range card IMO. I take back my word, I will get the 14R drool.gif

well, im also considering both the laptops for uni. do play games though tongue.gif anyway, yea, nvidia gpu's arequite attractive. both 14r and 15r are at the same price, well, since HD 7730M is right below 640M in benchmarking, there wont be any huge difference i guess biggrin.gif and yea, all geforce 600M gpu's supports FXAA http://blog.laptopmag.com/nvidia-600m-seri...-more-efficient icon_rolleyes.gif

So, it's up to you then... I will take 14R since I already experience mid range mobile gpu at my girl friend's laptop. It can support Crysis 2 very well and with FXAA, you can reduce the AA, and enable FXAA and adaptive v-sync, but still you experienced less jagged game. 15R, you can take 1920x1080 screen which is quite attractive price for large screen, and larger resolution. Both are great for their level. Which one you will buy then?

For me, the larger screen resolution has more value. There may be games that needs to run at lower graphics quality, but at least I will still have the 1080p for everything else, like web browsing and work.

For some people, they would say its better for me to play at native resolution but at higher settings , there are others that would argue that I dont mind playing in a lower resolution

Which one are you ?

There are now 3 different choice, with both pros and cons on each of them:

1. 15" 1920x1080
- Pros: large resolution
- Cons: text will become very small if screen size is small
- Cons: laptop GPU need to be above-average, so that it won't lag/lower details when performing GPU intensive task (such as gaming)

2. 15" 1366x768
- Pros: Balance build
- Cons: balance build = nothing special

3. 14" 1366x768
- Pros: sharper details compare to (2)
- Cons: screen size small

I prefer 2. 15" on laptop is just nice.

But I think both of this m-gpu will have no problem in 1366x768. The 15R with 1366x768 will be the best laptop among these two. For 1920x1080, someone might reduce the AA or even lower the game resolution for smooth game. Not many review about these 2 m-gpu.

I'm using 14" Aspire 4520 with 1280x800 resolution. I think the screen size already good for me. Smaller then 14" will make laptop look girlish. While 15" are very sexy for me.

I'm with you on this part. He can have large screen but also having the same resolution for 14R which is will not be too heavy for some game he gonna play if compare to larger resolution, 1920x1080. However, 14" are not bad for a gaming laptop and most of all, it's Nvidia feature that really attract me. With mid entry gpu like my pc, FXAA and adaptive v-sync are really important for me. Some might doesn't care the jagged when AA is turned off but not me. But again, getting 14R is like a waste since the same price can get larger screen size doh.gif Only if 15R have Nvidia card, that will be the best laptop among these 2.

just called dell up and enquire about the lappie. 15r full HD screen you need to pay rm130 more for it. couldnt decide which to buy now, since the 14r doesnt come with the bag, while the 15r comes with the bag. i asked him about the graphics, and he said 7730M is better. LOL btw, the significant difference is the screen size, and the weight, 14r 2.4kg, 15r 2.8kg. blink.gif

and btw, decided already, place order on the 14r already. best you guys who want the belkin bag, call them up and speak to them, they'll get it for you biggrin.gif

HD 7730M is a new m-gpu if compare to GT 640M but doesn't know the ACTUAL performance. 15r have bigger screen size and more sexy, plus, 0.4kg is nothing for a man icon_rolleyes.gif I try to help you kay.
15R=15", bigger screen size. For the m-gpu; I don't want to make blind assumption whether it's better or worse than GT 640M, You can believe Dell since they sell it.
14R=14", smaller screen but Nvidia have FXAA and adaptive v-sync which is really important for mid range card that having problem with heavy game.

Personally, the benchmark between those 2 m-gpu are quite close. I don't think it will make a different in 1366x768 resolution but on full HD 1920x1080, your m-gpu might work harder, and who knows you have to reduce the AA and effect. So, I will pick 15R with 1366x768 resolution, win at big screen size for the same price... icon_rolleyes.gif

agreed, since the 7730M is judge based on its specs. well, i prefer to get the 14 since i dont want it to be bulky. well, the 0.4kg doesnt matter for me, im just telling the difference there tongue.gif
not only that, i feel there's a catch there, the difference between 14r and 15r is the screen and the graphics. 14r doesnt give you a bag ( you can ask for it actually ), while the 15r gives you a bag, worth about rm86 there yo. the 14r only provides you with a 30 day trial antivirus which is free i think, while the 15r comes with a 15 months mcafee antivirus ( idk how much it cost ). if you would to exclude the bag and the antivirus from the 15r, shouldnt be 15r cheaper than the 14r ? there's something in the 14r that is a lil bit costly there. hmm.gif

The beg and av will doesn't bother me. But actually, you are right. Smaller, and less free gift but size are about the same. Hmmm... Or maybe it's marketing strategy so people will pick 15R. Haha... But why 14R doesn't include bag. Weird... And need to pay extra RM 86 for the beg is it? You buy from dell website? As for the bag, I will buy a bag pack laptop bag after all and the RM 86 bag might end up dusty in my cupboard. And for the av, Microsoft Security Essential and Avira Free Edition really served me well.

i buy thru the phone. i called the customer service and deal with them. i asked for the the bag, which was not included, but they gave me. if you buy online, and you want the bag, you have pay rm86 for it by selecting at the popular add-ons section. yea, even if lappie comes with the mcafee, i would uninstall it and install MSE or Avira in it. if it isnt marketing strategy, well, my guess is the nvdia gpu which costs. think about it, the 15months av would costs, and the bag would costs, while the 14r, originally you get no bag, and a 1 month trial av, which i guess is free hmm.gif

15" is nice if the resolution is higher this is why I enjoy the MBP at 1440x900 at 15" (compared to typical 1366x768). On 14" it looks sharper but on 15" it loses its sharpness

Anyway its your call. That and portability factor needs to be counted in. This is what I generally give advice , at the end of the day , look at the laptop. See if you like its style , keyboard and if its alright for you to carry. If it fits you , just buy it. However if there are similar types that you like and want to narrow it down feel free to ask

Have a look and feel of the laptop first

Exactly , its not like desktop where you just want to look at raw performance. Some people dont care about fancy casing , as long my system is powerful , I am alright. After all the entire box is going to be placed there and I am not bringing it around. Plus if I dont like the current keyboard , I can always replace it.

You can't do that with laptop (yes you may argue that you would get an external keyboard , but isn't it bit absurd to carry your razer keyboard around). The important aspect is the keyboard , try looking at it and try to see if you can type perfectly. You are going to be working assignments on it and taking it notes . Another aspect is the touchpad , some people prefer a huge touchpad area and there are others who prefer a smaller one. Put all into consideration

The next aspect is the battery life , this is vital for some and for others they dont mind. You want to know how long can you go unplugged , if you can go about say 4-5 hours , thats great. There is no need to bring the power brick.

Lastly , its warranty. Its important for laptops. Once you have considered these factors , then only you start worrying about specifications.

For me, the larger screen resolution has more value. There may be games that needs to run at lower graphics quality, but at least I will still have the 1080p for everything else, like web browsing and work.

Click this, Tech specs, you will see there is "My System", you click the arrow and change to "New! Inspiron 15R Special Edition Laptop". Then the page will refresh on it's own, and you can see there is two display available. But I also can't find the option to add full HD screen at customizing. Weird...

I don't know... It's my habit to check all the option etc. It's like playing with a software or hardware. Once I explore it, I just knew it's there. I'm weird too... I suggest you to call Dell and confirm with them,

Same la, after you click in to Customize it drops back to:
15.6" HD WLED True-Life (1366x768)

Call them up to double confirm on this.

OFFTOPIC: Still against 1920x1080 on 15" Monitor. shakehead.gif My eyesight already like old-men yet still want to see the small small letters rclxub.gif

Anyway it is up to TS's choice. However I want to steal the slogan from Proton: Drive Test it to believe it.

Play to believe it tongue.gif IMO, just take 1366x768 since it's a mid end gpu. But for pc, most of mid end gpu enough for 1080p.

yea, I agree with you. For me, I also will take 1366x768. The only reason is gaming. It's your choice.

Nice spec dude. However, I heard a lot of people say Acer quality sucks. And this is a true story of mine. Keep reading tongue.gif

I bought my laptop (Aspire 4520) at 2008 and my friend that buy laptop at the same year with me more Acer hatter. And they comment in front of me that Acer laptop is a failure bla3... They bragging that Compaq use Altec Lansing speaker. While Acer just have Dolby logo.

However, after 3 years, their speaker already sound like breaking off and the laptop start to have blue screen, mobo failure, hdd failure, and many more. As for me, Acer highpoint have good and fast service. My laptop in and out from Acer Centre for quite a number until my friend said that Acer sucks. However, I have 3 years warranty, and Acer replace my LCD, MOBO and other necessary hardware with no hassle. The last time I sent to Acer Centre is when my laptop having laggy issue at 2010 and they really change the mobo. Now my laptop still working f**king well for LAN party Dota 48 hour, Backtrack compatible for wireless cracking and it still rock though people insult her. That's the reason I really love my laptop.

So, it's Acer, people say it's a bad brand, I will say the last time people saying that to me, now they buy Acer product too. laugh.gif The reason I tell this is because I can guarantee that people will advice you to buy other brand instead of Acer.

I think Dell service is the best and know for their front door service. But got for what you pay. Mine sometime takes two weeks but their reason, no stock for the current hardware, need to wait from KL. Acer vs Dell, it's more to Perodua vs Toyota. Hehe... Warranty is important because you never know when will your laptop die. Just think that the extra pay is an insurance. Just take Dell if you afford it. Acer is not that exclusive.

The Acer Aspire V3-571G is a good laptop. I am able to play Battlefield 3 on it at high / ultra settings with some eye candies turned off e.g AA pretty smoothly at its native resolution of 1366x768. It does run hot though when gaming due to it having an Ivy Bridge processor, which can run pretty hot. smile.gif

Try check Asus latest model if there is available. And survey Lenovo too. You might end up buying desktop. LOL... Dell never my choice. Don't know why. Maybe I think the price is too expensive for me. But they have superb service. Asus will be my 1st choice, and Acer 2nd. Why Asus? Because I owned Acer and now attracted to Asus... For gaming, can check MSI laptop. Nice wo!

According game-debate.com, the performance of 7730M should be

GT640M < RADEON HD7730M < GT550M

Theoretically, there is not much performance difference between HD7730M and GT640M. Both gpu should run fine on demanding games like Max Payne 3 according to it's new system requirement just announced.

Hey, am i too late? Is this thread inactive already?

It's just that I am from India...and I wanted to buy one of the Dell Inspiron 14r SE or 15r SE....However, there is no FHD option in the local Dell website...
Should it be better to buy the 14" 1366x768 instead of the 15" 1366x768 ? It says in Wikipedia that 15" 1366x768 screens are often cheaply made...Is that true?
I personally prefer the 14" because nVidia will support PhysX and I really want to play Batman Arkham City? biggrin.gif
Please advise...

If you bump the thread, of course it will active. I have Nvidia card, but have to disable Physx maybe due to buggy support. So, still I have to disable the Physx option in game. So, as you can see, my Nvidia Physx are useless. Just follow your heart. For lappy, the thing that will influence your decision is the size, weight and the design. For performance, I think on par.

Apparently Full HD laptop lcd are premium products, so factories use higher quality components due to stricter quality control, something like that.

Hi All, Hope this thread has not been forgotten.

I just wanted to choose between
-Acer m3 ultrabook which has 3rd gen i5 and nividia 640m vs
-Dell Inspiron 15r which has 3r gen i5 as well but 2gb 7730m.

I'm looking solely for gaming performance but the portability in terms of the M3 ultrabook seems enticing.

Which one to go for?? and do both cards support 3d?

GT 640M is better than HD 7730M by at least 15%. Go notebookcheck.net to check the benchmark.

Hey the Lenevo Y480 does look good. But i'm in India and i see only the 630M model available here now and the 650M version is not yet released.

640M is only about 5% better than the 7730M according to notebookcheck

GT 640M definitely better than 7730M. Should be around 10 - 15%. Check the fps for selected games.
