Default Reasonable Computer? - 07-11-2013, 07:38 PM

I'm looking to get a laptop because the one I'm on now isn't mine and it's not all that good. I'm probably going to game on it, but nothing like Crysis 3 so I don't need a supercomputer. I'm going to post the specs below and if there's anything wrong with it then hoping someone could let me know. I'm not looking for an amazing computer just something that works well.

Specs:

Windows 8 64 bit
3rd generation Intel core i5-3230m processor
Intel HD Graphics 4000
15.6 inch diagonal HD LED-backlit display (1366 x 768)
8GB DDR3 System Memory (2 Dimm)
750 GB 5400 rpm hard drive
6 Cell lithium ion battery
Supermulti 8x DVD+/-R/RW with double layer support
802.11b/g/n WLAN

All this for the price of $619.99. I cut out the stuff that doesn't really matter like webcam and keyboard. So if anyone could give me any recommendations or anything it would be great. Thanks

To be honest I don't know what alot of these terms mean. I know a lot of the part that's the operating system (don't know how else to put it) not the actual parts involved inside. So for a laptop is it good enough?

EDIT: I know laptops are bad for gaming in general

Laptops arnt the best for gaming. If you just going to playing games like LoL you will be fine.

Cut out the keyboard? Good luck with typing m8.

by gpu, I mean an actual graphics card, since what you posted is on-board graphics and not a dedicated component. with your processor and ram amount, I think you'll be fine with gaming but you'll most likely have to play on uber low settings (i dont know if that's what you want. high-end games will suffer from fps drops)

Yeah I don't really care about graphics as long as my fps isn't TOO low. And to the other poster, I meant I cut out the keyboard in my list. I just have a regular keyboard while you could also get different kinds. I'm not like building a custom computer or anything I'm just ordering online with some ability to customize

This is just personal preference, but I wouldn't get windows 8.
I'd say windows 7 is better overall.

That's not a bad price for what you're getting.
Although Mircast is right by saying you should get a standalone graphics card.
