I don't see anything about its graphics.

If you want to do any gaming, you'll need some type of graphics card, not integrated. Besides, Sony is way overpriced.

Check out ProStar (http://shopprostar.com/index.cfm?mainpage=product). Decent prices, and you can custom configure what you want.

How about this one? It's a bit more expenssive but it beats the hell out of that Sony!
