Performance & Gaming

What it is good for: Not suitable for: minimum specifications recommended specifications
The most important measure for the power of a laptop is the video card. A mediocre CPU can do everything a fast CPU does, just a little slower, but a mediocre video card makes the newest games unplayable. It is important to note that maximum performance comes with the highest price. Also most new games run best on Windows 7.
