There's one thing that just came in mind, what is not great hardware these days really? Some may consider that Intel P4 and above is great hard ware and some may think that everything with 4Gb RAM or more is great...and then of course everything under is not so great. Personally I tend to think that even this laptop
isn't so "great" anymore since its GPU isn't that good anymore. There's a few great games which don't run on that computer, or at least they don't run with the default settings, not even with the lowest settings.
There's one game in particular that I'm thinking of, Payday 2, it doesn't run "out of the box", there's a huge mouse lag and it barely gets up to 15fps in the main menu on the lowest settings. However there's a tiny mod which changes the shadow map resolution, I added it and now Payday 2 is very playable on the laptop in question and I also bet that it will run smoothly on other computers which aren't as "good" as this.
Therefor I suggest to add Payday 2
to the list with a note to add this
