    What do you guys think of this laptop?

    Convinced my office to supply it to me for work. Besides that I will mainly use it to capture gameplay and edit videos. If it's possible I will try to play some of my Steam games with it as well.

    lol Pappa. I'm actually being serious though. I'm okay with troubleshooting shit but when it comes to actual PC specs I'm as noob as can be.

    The benchmarks for the GPU aren't that bad. Up to you whether it's good enough for your PC gaming needs.

    Overall it's a well rounded laptop. Keyboard layout is a bit strange for a US keyboard but that's just something you'd get used to. Never heard anything bad about Acer laptops.

    I'm on a Acer now and it's never had a problem so that's why I wanted to stick with the brand. Searching around seems to have the reputation of being well built laptops.

    Thanks for that link. I got better than I expected as I was only hoping to play my little Steam games like Fallout and Bastion. Looks like I will be able to run my THQ Humble Bundle with this thing.

    I honestly think that laptop will work quite well for what you are intending to use it for. INTERNET PORN.

    That's always the best benchmark for sure.

    That will run lots of games on their highest settings, not Crysis 3, but many. It needs a faster hard drive, you'll get a bottleneck there.

    But plug an HDMi into that thing and connect it to a good screen, and it should be pretty great. Way better than what console can do. My laptop is less powerful, and I'm running must things 1080p at 50fps.

    Late to the party.

    Used, you were only supposed to buy one.

    Nice Graphic Card, but a SSD as Harddrive would have been neat, too.

    Would a graphic card only be able to render one graphic at a time or would it just describe what's happening in a graphic manner?
