Hey, just ordered a new laptop for £460 and was wondering if you think it will be up for some light-medium games? such as Skyrim or ARMA 2. Specs below.

i3-3110m @2.4GHz with 3MB Cache
nVidia GeForce GT 650m 2GB DDR3 DirectX 11
4GB 1600MHz ram (Samsung)
500GB HDD 5400RPM (Going to upgrade once received)
no OS (Have uses left on win7)

Usually you want to ask THEN order. Should be OK, it's a decent video card, mid-range.

True :p  I had watched video's on youtube of the Graphics card gaming, and have since learnt of a few nifty tweaks that can be done to games such as Skyrim and BF3 that will allow it to run them in the highest (Almost) settings at a constant 30 FPS. I also upgraded the processor to an I5-3210m at 2.5GHz, which i think is a wise decision. I changed the RAM to 2 Gb's and ordered a seperate 8gb ddr3 1600mhz kit which was several £ cheaper, and i can sell the 2GB module on ebay. So tis all good :)  ill leave a detailed review once i actually get it (takes for ever! :p )
