  • This is from 2010 so i thought it was really useful but i look at the comments and everyone is like phhhhhh that's not right everything is different now.

  • AMD Radeon R6 would this be a good graphics card to play games on??? please get back to me it would be MUCH appreciated

  • hey what about tn display is good or bad plzz tell me

  • I know this might sound dumb but I know almost Nothing about gaming laptops lol, but can you go on the internet like Safari or something and go on google just like any other laptop?

  • I was amazed when he said all you need was 1GB of RAM. I guess back in 2010 that was okay but to play modern games like Watch Dogs and probably GTA V, you will need at least 2GB and for better performance, 4GB.
