According to the link found by PP, Notebookcheck: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5730, the 330 is way below the 5730.

Like really below.

Edit

But the lappy has an LED screen, which is why it's same price.

Thanks, makes sense. Have to say I don't like where are all the jacks are positioned on that MSI, right side of the laptop is not cool for those who like to use a mouse.
