Hello. I am on a tight budget and spent quite some time on these forums. Am looking to buy a new laptop and after a lot of research, ended up on the Dell Inspiron 14R Special Edition. The main purpose of the laptop is casual use. Some low to medium gaming, watching videos, songs, browsing etc etc. The configuration of the laptop is as follows -
Processor - Intel i-3210M with 2.5 GHz With Turbo Boost Upto 3.1 GHz
Chipset - Intel B75 Express
RAM - 4GB DDR3 (Will expand to 8GB later. As I said, am on a budget at the moment.)
HDD - 500GB SATA HDD @ 5400 RPM.
GPU - 2GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 640M DDR3 .

My question is, are any of these parts or the laptop as a whole, known to have big issues? Like cooling etc. etc. And is this laptop good enough for low-medium gaming (Fifa 13, PES 13, Skyrim, Far Cry3 etc but mostly Fifa and PES) ?

Here is the link - http://bit.ly/Yekm8V .
Thank you.

Easily. It should run games pretty well.

Thanks. I almost bought a Sony with AMD Radeon HD 7550m 1GB graphic card but I realized you can get this Dell for the same price. Are Dells consistently underpriced compared to Sony?
