    How much you buying it for?

    Plus it's a GT 610 so the very low end of a dedicated graphics card.........maybe you might be able to get them on low settings but I would say it will struggle. It's more for entertainment usage like HD videos, etc.

    You need to find a GT630 or GT 540 to get anything decent quality gaming.

    http://www.ebuyer.com/279523-acer-as...p-lx-rhj02-175

    Acer Aspire Timeline X5830TG Laptop
    - Intel Core i5 2430M 2.4GHz
    - 750GB HDD + 6GB RAM
    - 15.6" HD + DVD±RW
    - Webcam + BT + NVIDIA GT540M
    - Windows 7 Home Premium 64

    £540

    Thought the processor is slightly weaker than that Asus.

    The graphics is far far better........

    or

    Lenovo IdeaPad Z570 i5-2450M 6GB 750GB GT540M 1GB DVDRW £600

    or

    http://www.novatech.co.uk/laptop/ran...repro2450.html

    ovatech nSpire Pro 2450 - 15.6" Intel i5 2450 Mobile Processor - 4GB DDR3 Memory - 500GB SATA Hard Drive - DVD Writer - Intel HM65 Chipset - NVIDIA GT540M Graphics £510(not including OS)

    If you have your windows cd, you can certainly better ones like the novatech, with a better processor and graphics.

    What do you mean?

    Because in terms of graphics you should be looking at GT540 or GT630 or higher, so a higher number on the end of the GT.

    And a I5 processor.

    Yeah, because anything underneath will struggle to play your games at medium or high. And you need an i5 with it to balance out the processing needs of games like CoD, etc.

    I expect those laptops to have around at least 3hours of battery life.

    Have you got a windows cd?

    Can you repost that in English? Is your post even supposed to be in this thread, or did you mean to post it somewhere else?
