Exclamation I would like to know if this laptop is good for what I want to do...

Lenovo IdeaPad G505s 15.6-Inch Laptop (59406417) Black by Lenovo at Amazon.com

I have been considering this laptop and would like to know if it would aid to my needs. I do play games, however, it is only things like Sims and Minecraft, so I do not need that good of a graphics card. I also quite often use youtube, spotify, and other streaming sites, and possibly a home design software. I am not very good at figuring out what all of the things mean in a laptop so I would like some help in this matter.

I'd heard that anything more than that amount of RAM isn't necessary, I don't require anything that uses very high-quality. Medium at best.

I hope you mean 4GB and not MB .

All depends on what games you play... because integrated graphics aren't going to play something like BF4 or Skyrim, but will play something like TF2 ok.
