http://support.gateway.com/s/PC/R/1014739R/1014739Rsp2.... That is the first, desktop my friend has.

http://www.amazon.com/Lenovo-B575-1450A5U-IdeaPad-E-Ser... That is his laptop which probably hasn't a chance to play even minecraft.. lol. 1.6GHz APU. Lol..

Will any of these two computers play GTA IV at any settings at roughly 1366x768 for laptop, 1440x900 for desktop.

The desktop has the best chance. At least its a Core2Quad. If he wants to upgrade it, he can get a new power supply and a nice new card, or just a Radeon HD7750.

You might just manage the lowest possible settings on the laptop. I imagine the desktop should manage low. Probably high/very high if you get a HD 7750 with that desktop like Deemo13 suggested.

EDIT: I will just point out, those APU's might surprise you ;)  I have one in my laptop and I can play Fallout 3/Oblivion etc. on the lowest possible settings. I wouldn't call the framerates high but for a single player game like that, it doesn't get annoying. Definitely playable.

Eh, maybe medium. My computer (4.4GHz 2500K/GTX460) can barely pull high settings at 60fps. Very high bogs me down too much.

Depends how sensitive you are to that I suppose, I don't think 60FPS is necessary personally. Some people think so though.

Neither do I. It doesn't pull 60 all the time. It actually drops down below 30 at some parts. Some parts that is. Most of the time it is smooth.

Either way, its still better than console :)
