Looking to upgrade my laptop

  1. So i can play a few better games, like BattleField 3. not sure if i even need to upgrade seeing as i just bought this laptop about 2 months ago. When i tried to play BattleField 3 the only way i could play without constant lag was to lower my resolution to the lowest, then it was missing shapes and shuch. The lag was still there a little bit with that. I dont think this laptop should be THIS bad with games. Any ideas on what parts i can buy to get this game running at peak proformance. My specs. are as follows:

    Your laptop appears to be a relatively low performing budget model that is not suitable for most modern gaming. Since the graphics solution is integrated and cannot be replaced you will not be able to upgrade this laptop in any meaningful way to improve gaming performance. While you might be able to increase RAM, it won't fix the basic low gaming performance.
