Tell him playing games is a deal-breaker and load one of the games, test it and, if it works OK, buy the machine; if it doesn't, uninstall the game and don't buy it.

No integrated graphics chipset yet plays any of the recent games at better than the lowest resolution, lowest quality and lowest (too low) frame rates. Look for a laptop with a dedicated chip.

Felix

I myself have an acer aspire which replaced an acer extensa that had problems. It had the chip you refer to above and it would not even load Command and Conquer Generals, FEAR on the test runs ran at 3 - 7 FPS on the card with low settings so the chances it working on Hitman are slim and if it does it will be unplayable.

My currect machine has an ATI x700 which gives reasonable rates at both FEAR and Half Life and impressive results with Generals. So I would advice an x700 or better or a geforce 6300go or better.

You need a Desktop with a good Graphics card and CPU with at least 512mb ram
