    Turion's are laptop/netbook only and mobility label on the gpu/integrated both point to this being a laptop/netbook :sarcastic: , it that wasn't enough he/she says its a laptop in the first line.

    I agree the graphics card, which is integrated is pretty bad, but it can't be upgraded as its a laptop.

    You should be able to run 4 or 5 year old games fairly well, but only with the settings toned down.
  3. are you sure its windows 7 64 bit as you stated 4gb ram(3.74gb usable) which is normal for a 32 bit machine
  4. Short answer is that you can't upgrade, unfortunately. Either get a new notebook capable of running the games you want to play or go for a desktop gaming system. The latter tends to be the better option, if it is an option for you, because you can either spend the same money as you would on a laptop and get a better system or go for comparable specs on the desktop and save money. A desktop is also upgradeable in the future.

  6. seriously?!? a "gaming" notebook with integrated graphics? :D try to google "gaming laptops/notebooks" and you'll see the difference.
  7. Nothing to do here
  8. Thank you all.
    Although I was under the impression that you could upgrade to a new Graphics chip according to what I have seen online and on the AMD website
