Re: Best laptop for a student
20fps (note that that's the average.. it would dip down to the 10's or even less very often) is not enough to have any type of enjoyment at all in an fps.. trust me.. and 800x600 will look so bad, high quality or not, that it won't be any fun. Basically any other game that isn't 3+ years old is more demanding then hl2 and if it barely runs hl2, it's not going to run them..
If you want to do any gaming that's not like the sims or something, a gma950 will NOT do.
