    Imo:
    • Processor: 2.1 GHz AMD A10-5745M is not the fastest and the AMD is a power (battery) hog.
    • the win/8 is also an unfortunate condition of new preinstalls

    In my opinion it is a very good laptop for gaming because its specifications are very good enough for the upgraded games.

    That is a good laptop computer for gaming. Jobeard is correct that it is a battery hog (even most of the AMD A8's are battery hogs). And I would not worry about lag, unless you get it from your internet connection. Pair it with a good internet connection and you will be good to go for the games you listed.

    It has exactly what you need. However, it is HP, eww. Don't expect it to last longer than two years.

    I have owned 3 different HP laptops that have all lasted more then two years. I have one that is still going that is over eight years old now. Only thing wrong is it needs a new battery, but it does still boot up and run properly. Nothing wrong with HP, just have to do your research before buying something new.

    I can say that the display on that laptop is awful. I wouldn't get it due to the processor.
