Yes and it is good to see someone with a gaming laptop. Are you able to upgrade your GPU? That is just a personal question for my curiosity. Good luck and have fun gaming.

I don't see info about a video card, but I think your laptop can play borderlands but yes, you shoudl be fine.

the game isnt too demanding, and while your system is no power house, its not weak either.

you should be able to play on high0ish settings with a steady frame rate.

I wouldn't call it a gaming laptop. The nVidia GeForce 410M is not that much more powerful than the Intel HD 3000. My laptop has the much more powerful GT 550M and while it can play games, I wouldn't exactly call it a "gaming laptop" either.

Yeah you are right it isn't a gaming laptop. But after going through a few threads prier to this one and the OP's were asking the inpossible with their laptops and trying to help them and how late it was here.

I shouldn't have stated it that way but what I was thinking did not go the way I ment it. I was thinking this is the closest one so far tonight to a gaming laptop. Plus I am on all kinds of meds just to stay alive.

Pain meds as well so sometimes I think one way and it comes out another. But thanks for pointing it out to me I definitely don't want to give the wrong information or to make someone think thay have something when they don't.

It'd be much appreciated if anyone else could put their input in as well.

Thanks!

I played Borderlands very well on a desktop with a Core 2 Duo e8400, 4GB RAM (DDR2 800) and an NVIDIA 9800gt 1GB.

The 9800 GT is way faster than the 410M (in benchmarks, over 2x) but your CPU and RAM will be a lot faster than mine, so maybe that will offset things a bit.

What i guess will happen is that you probably will be able to play it on a good resolution, but cut back on the visual effects.
