I've just bought a Sony laptop with the following specs:

-i7 3632 QM (3rd generation) processor, 2.20Ghz with turboboost up to 3.10 Ghz (Quad-core)
-Nvidia Geforce GT 640M LE( 2gb dedicated), also Intel HD 4000 graphics
-750 GB Hdd
-1920x1080 resolution.

I do not have so much information about hardware, so I want to ask if this laptop can run games like FarCry 3, Skyrim, Shogun 2 Total War in high settings?

It looks fine for gaming although my Sony Vaio make me want to kill myself due to the fact I can't even run TF2, Minecraft, and Terraria on low.

That is the same GPU that is used in the Razer Edge tablet thing, and you have a faster CPU so you should be able to run most games on low-medium. According to some CES stuff, the Edge can do Dishonored on medium at 1366 x 768, so at 1920 x 1080 you could probably do low. I'm not sure about Far Cry 3, Skyrim and Shogun 2. Far Cry 3 is very demanding in general, and Skyrim is CPU intensive, and that CPU has a low clock speed. I have never played nor heard anything about Shogun 2 so I can't really comment on that.

It looks like a nice laptop, the problem is just that laptops aren't designed for gaming as Brett said.

DON'T underestimate shogun 2 friend. Because you can see 32000 soldier moving at a time so if you want to keep that thing you shouldn't think about shogun 2.

It's fairly weak, the performance of the GT 640m LE is 20% below the regular GT 640m. You bought a sinking ship my friend. :(
