It's pretty good for the price you payed, but not a gaming computer by any standards.

You could play Starcraft 2 on low-medium at the laptops native resolution. Newer, more demanding games such as Crysis 3 won't run well, if at all.

+1 good for the price and will play SC2 but a good gaming laptop will cost 5-10 times more.
