    Its not terrible but at the same time your not gonna be able to play newer games or CPU intensive games (like Crysis 3). It really is dependent on the types of games you are going to play, although at that price you could probably get something better. I would recommend going to a site like overclockers.co.uk. They can build custom PCs(not the case, just things like using different graphics cards, sound cards etc) for you and send it to you in less than a week, you also might want to get a desktop PC because if you want to say change the graphics card it is easier to do so (seeing as the graphics chip can’t be removed from a laptop.)

  2. It’s ok but not for games with i memory usage and graphics like GTA 5 Battlefield 3 or 4 Call of Duty and etc. But good for older games (2008 and before) but a better computer would be alienware or hp envy i7

    This laptop really isn’t that good, at all.

    The biggest general problem with this laptop is that it comes with a 15.6" 1366×768 display. 1366×768 resolution in a 15.6" display makes things onscreen large, and 15.6" displays that have 1366×768 resolution tend to be low-grade LCD panels with very poor image quality due to low contrast. You should make a point to avoid displays like this when it is reasonable to do so, unless you require the larger text for eyesight-related reasons.

    The second issue is that the AMD Radeon HD 5470 GPU is really really far on the low and underperforming side. The HD 5470 is slower than previous-generation Intel HD 3000 integrated graphics, and you can easily do much better than this.

    A much better choice would be the £549 ASUS N56VM. The ASUS N56VM comes with a significantly better GPU (NVIDIA GT 630M), and a significantly better display (15.6" 1920×1080 – lets you fit a lot more onscreen, and also has decent colors/contrast plus a matte finish)
