  1. The hard drive is a real weakness.... Try and find something with an SSD - you'll never regret it
  2. Best answer
    It should be okay and the hard drive is very slow but it will only affect load times of games not performance.
  3. You'll be able to play games, the hhd only affects load times, but the processor and graphics are pretty weak, so your probably going to be at 720p and maybe low to medium graphics settings.
