Needing something with an 11 inch screen that can play Half Life 2 and lesser graphic intense games on a laptop. Budget is about $350.

While I am not expecting to play Crysis or anything current...Being able to play some HL2 on medium settings would work out great.

The recommended system requirements for HL2:
Pentium 4 or Athlon XP
CPU Speed: 3.0 Ghz
RAM: 1 GB
OS: Windows 2000/XP
Video Card: DirectX 9 level Graphics Card
DirectX version: 9.0

This is what I am looking at so far. Small is best.

I have to stick with the 11 inch screen, and I could care less if it has a optical drive or not.

I have seen some dual core intel chips with faster speeds...but wasn't sure if it was a moot point seeing how they were only dual core, intel onboard gfx, and Celerons. Some were baytrail as well.

Thanks for the help!

It will be fine and playable, it's an old game and while it may not use all four cores it's just not that demanding.
