    That's no good for gaming at all.
    I suggest you look into a desktop PC and probably a bit larger budget.

    you are going to spend more on a mediocre laptop that will play games on low-medium settings than you will on a desktop that plays the same game on medium-high settings. What is your budget? Best Buy has a couple in the $1000-1200 range but I HIGHLY suggest you shop elsewhere. You should look into an ASUS laptop or consider a desktop.

    Keep in mind, though, that as a rule of thumb, a true gaming laptop is:
    Bulky
    Heavy
    Large
    (very) Expensive
    and Let's just call it "semi-portable"

    Are you going to be on move alot? There is no point of buying a laptop if it is going to stay in 1 place most of the times. Sure it saves space and it has portability but that is about it.

    If you are not keen on buying hardware and putting together a self built PC which will save you cost then there are other options available for you.

    What is your budget? Something starting at around $400-$500 will get you a semi decent machine, moving to $600-$800 will get you pretty good machine and around the $1000 mark you get a pretty beastly rig ;)

    What are you looking to do on it? Gaming only or anything else? Oh and as I said, you budget ;)

    PS:

    if you are still looking at this, spring for an A6-3420M OR an A8-3520M (thats the name of the chip) laptop.
