Does it have to be a laptop? You'd get much better value for money with a desktop.

slightly surprised to see it running Vista Home Basic, and I'm not sure what the Go series of graphics cards are like for gaming.

Good for a laptop, will not run games. (even the older ones)

For that kind of cash, a decent desktop can be obtained.

Unless u can spend £1500 - £2000 on a gaming laptop dont bother, seriously. For £900 u can get a good desktop and have the ability to upgrade the GFX card. That aside the monitor for that laptop is tiny!! And the HD is way to small to game on, u will be very dissapointed with the gaming perfomance.

What games are you looking to play?
