that laptop wont play either, either!

If you want a laptop, it sure aint gonna be for gaming, especially for 1500. the only thing you'll be able to use that laptop for is college research n shiz, nothing else, no gaming watsoever, or maybe yeah, you can play solitaire and maybe squeeze in some poker, but thats it.

if you want a good performance gaming PC, then build ur own. but for laptop, good luck.

Jesus man will you listen to them for christsake, that laptop is a piece of S. I would highly recomend you build your own computer, or better yet - I would just buy a cheapy dell desktop for around 700. If your in junior high you will probley get another comp by the time you go off to college (or at least I would). If you absolutley NEED a laptop I highly recomend a Toshiba.

Not to be a wise***, but hje said he is a junior in highschool, not in junior high. Secondly, That notebook is a piece. I have really never encountered any reason in college to have a notebook over a desktop, especially if you are gaming. You should ask the fine gentlemen and ladies on this forum to help yoou build a most kick*** desktop. One to bragh to all your friends.

Because it's not a feasible idea ...

And for $1500 you can buy a pretty solid gaming desktop computer, but if you want a solid gaming laptop, be prepared to spend at least $2000-2500+
