There is practically nothing in it. Neither can be reccomended for playing really new games. They might handle some slightly older games on low settings.

The Packard Bell is a tiny bit better, literally about 2% faster.

Neither of those laptops have a GPU capable of playing modern games like BF3, ect.

+1 to that.

The only laptop that I could find on Amazon which would be any good for games, and close in price to the two you mentioned, was this. And it's still not great.

That has an integrated GPU. It will be pretty much useless for playing anything other than basic games, or Minecraft at minimum settings.
