Well if you want to game, that laptop will not be a very good fit. Intel graphics are good for basic blueray and stuff like youtube but show it a game and it will turn into a slideshow!

Gaming on a laptop means getting a laptop with a dedicated video card. Its going to be hard to find a good all round lappy with a dedicated video card for that price but give us a bit and i know ill find something to at least consider.

if you can manage a few more bucks, this laptop packs a good punch.

Any cheap laptop you buy I suggest replacing the HDD first thing.
