Acer Aspire Laptop Advice?

Im starting to consider purchasing a laptop, and my eye has been drawn to the Acer Aspire 5315 for £299-350. After reading a few threads, i’ve read that the Acer is good in terms of internet browsing and media playing, but not good at all with gaming. This causes me concern as i wish to have a maximum of 3 games in total running on the laptop, with rollercoaster tycoon 3 being the most demanding. Has anyone had experience of an Acer Laptop with RCT3? What other laptops of similar RAM and HardDRives are available for a similar price? Thanks
Dell Inspiron Laptops ive read are fitted with the same Integrated Graphics Media Accelerator X3100. .. does this make this unsuitable for me aswell?

    Acer offers great laptops. Here’s a list of Acer laptops that can handle Gaming:

    Basically, for gaming, you need to choose a laptop with a dedicated video card that’s fast enough to handle the latest games.

    yeah my advice is, do not buy an ACER laptop, they suck. My new Dell inspiron 1525 has 3gig RAM and 250gig HD and its great, my opinion is that Acers maybe ony good for web BROWSING, not doing much with the internet, and office use like word processing and excel

  6. You’re better off with a reliable make, like Sony or Compaq. Price shouldn’t be an issue if you want a reliable PC – if you go for a cheap one, you may spend more if it goes wrong.

    you might have issues with the graphics chipset on that model. It isn’t very good. Like you said, it would be great for business use, or simple, everyday use….but poor for any type of games. In order to gain gaming performance, you will have to pay a bit more for a better video chipset. Something like this would better suit gaming needs (look at the second one):

    It does cost a bit more though,
