That's what I have. I can run CS fine, and CSS in ok quality (though I have to play on a lower resolution). I haven't tested other games out, but there are other video cards.

If you're really a serious gamer, ditch the laptop now (save the $$) and build that PC now. It's just a phase that students (HS seniors ----> College freshman) go through... that they MUST have a laptop for college. (I got a laptop for college) - It really depends on your classes. The only time I use my laptop on campus if for taking it to the library, and using Mathematica/Matlab. I'm an engineering student, so I figured I'd need a laptop freqeuntly. If you're an art student, don't bother with it.

Other than that, taking it to lectures is sometimes useful, but more distracting, hence useless. I've seen people browse the internet, watch movies/TV shows, play games, talk on IM, etc... There have been many news stories relating to the fact that students who take their laptops to class are more distracted, than ever. I know I was when I took it to my Chemistry class. You're more inclined to screw around in your laptop, especially if the class is boring (Chemistry = boring )

I know lots of people who have laptops, but don't ever use them for their mobility. So what's the use? People usually (not all) buy laptops because of their mobility - definitely not performance, because the performance of a well-built PC > the performance of a laptop.
