Hello and welcome to the forum HD 4250M is a low-end card so it can handle COH on low settings on a low resolution, i would recommend at least a 5650M for playing games on reasonable settings with a good FPS.
Im not really looking for a gaming laptop..just a laptop that can play that particulr game or similar games of that grphic quality. I figured since i purchased the game a few years ago laptop graphic cards would be better than in the past. Maybe Im wrong.
basically like I said before I just wnat a lowend (under$500) laptop for day to day use and play COH once in a while.
Thanks for all the support so far.
PS-- my desktop has a ATI Radeon Xpress 200 series graphics..can that be upgraded with a simple plug and play? Ive played the game on the PC on low settings it still stutters a bit. But if there are some decent cheap graphics cards out there Id love to hear some recomendations also.
