  1. pretty good. what brand is it?
  2. its the dell xps 14,

    look at the "best" column
  3. The 425M is at best a mid-range card for laptops. It will probably get you playable frame rates in Battlefield: BC2, Starcraft II and Call of Duty: MW2. See here for some game benchmarks:
  4. The price isn't bad, but I agree for long term gaming you'll need something more powerful.
  5. i would say it is not the best deal if you want a gaming laptop that can handle anything on high graphics smoothly and if you can spend 1000+$ i would say go with this one
