Advice on buying a new laptop?

  Chekereis 21:29 17 Jun 2017

Hi, I am looking to buy a new laptop and I am interested in one but I'm not sure about the specs. Would you consider this laptop to be able to handle games on Low/medium and be able to run browser games without a struggle? It is as a gift for a youngster and they play browser games and a few bigger games such as sims etc.

Operating System:

Windows 8.1 64-bit


Intel Core i5 3210M @ 2.50GHz


8.00GB Dual-Channel DDR3




Generic PnP Monitor ([email protected])

Intel HD Graphics 4000 (Lenovo)

1023MB NVIDIA GeForce GT 635M (Lenovo)


120GB Samsung SSD 840 EVO (SSD)

1TB Seagate ST1000LM024 HN-M101MBB (SATA) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

If anyone could lend some advice or opinions on the laptop it would really help me out, thank you and have a good day :)
