I am mainly looking at running Skyrim on pretty high settings and Deus Ex: HR on pretty high settings. The price drew me in.

The price is good, but you will not run Deus Ex and/or Skyrim on that machine. Integrated graphics at 512 RAM? Dual core CPU? Sorry to disappoint, but if you want to run those games at high settings, that laptop will perform badly.

How about low/medium settings?

http://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-Radeon-HD-6480G.55685.... - a link where you can read more on the video card in question.

To tell the truth I am not even sure those games will start on that video card. The card is listed as class 3 on that page I linked for you, pretty low on the food chain so to speak, an entry-level. For highly demanding games, like Deus Ex, for which you will also need a powerful CPU, from quad cores to upper echelons, the laptop's dual core will simply not cut it, not even on lower resolutions. Skyrim will also need powerful setups, so frankly you should just give up any gaming ideas on that laptop, at least for 1-2 years back's titles, let alone future games like Skyrim or Deus Ex.

So simply put, you need to play way older games in order for that laptop to perform well enough.

I run mmorpgs and all TES games on a toshiba with lower stats than that. But if you really want the most out of it use a desktop.

Games like Skyrim might be a bit too demanding.
That laptop you've mentioned is not a good one for playing games. I'd rather spend that money and get a desktop PC.
It costs around $500, so spending that money on a good desktop can be miles better than that laptop. :)
