Hi guys ,

I am planning to get a good notebook.... :) 


These are the specs :

Intel Core i5 2.4
Nvidia GT330M GDDR3 512Mb :D 
DDR3 RAM 1066MHz
HDD of 5400RPM :??: 

Please advise me,

that will it make a big differene in 5400 and 7200 rpm... :ouch: 


Your Opinion about GPU performance....for Multimedia Editing and Somewhat Gaming (Weekends) ...and what is GDDR3 ???

Thank you.

7200 vs 5400: this is the speed the hard drive spins at. the hard drive stores data. A 7200 rpm will perform better but consume more power. Personally, I don't think the increase to 7200 is worth it. Especially since the only thing it will affect is game loading times... and only marginally.

That is an excellent GPU for a laptop. You'll do more than fine with it. Here:

Of course you will have to lower some settings in newer games especially but that's expected with a laptop.

GDDR3 is the graphics memory. GDDR2<GDDR3<GDDR4 etc. It does not affect performance nearly as much as the actual chip (ie GT330M) but the memory type will make a slight difference. Don't worry about it. GDDR3 is good.

Need anything else, just let me know.
