Just wondering whether i will be able to play call of duty 4 or any 3D accelerator game - other 1st person shooters, whilst having this video card. I do not own this laptop yet but am thinking of purchasing one. Thanks
You can play COD4, but don't expect great performance from it.a HD 4250 is a low-end card so you have to play new games on low settings and on a low resolution.
Consider at least a HD 5650M/Nvidia GT 330M for gaming on a laptop
Isn't the 4250 an IGP? That alone will be a limitation, as no IGP is capable of decent gaming performance. Pretty much any laptop with a discrete GPU will outperform that device. Maziar is right, look for something alone those lines if you need good gaming performance. Beware, there will be a large price difference going that route.
@ Maziar didn't i mention at low resolution and low setting???
people have even played modern warfare 2 with hd 4200 at medium settings with acceptable frame rates...and hd 4250 is better than hd 4200...
