Conclusion

 

I already said this before, but although with a Core i3 processor this is a budget notebook and intended for the casual internet surfer or word-processor user. The integrated Intel HD GMA graphic card is not intended for games at all, but maybe you could run some type of the little “time-killing” games just to overcome boredom. Please note I would have said “intended for the casual USER” but since most of the “casual” users would prefer to watch a movie or play a tune from time to time in spare time remember the mono speaker will bring you awful experience. Be prepared to bring a good pair of headphones if you want to use it for multimedia stuff, alone..
