please could you help, I'm looking to buy a new laptop and I'll be playing games and going on the net.
most of the ones I've looked at have the "128MB Intel Media Accelerator Graphics" are these ok with games..????
thanks

You now have 3 threads on the subject of laptops, at least this one you're asking a different question but I'm a bit puzzled as to why you've started another thread rather than just continue on one of your other ones.

The graphics you mention is rather poor and will play older games ie more than 3 years old ok (probably) but not any of the newer ones. It would be fine for word processing surfing the web almost anything, but not games.

you'll pay a lot more for a laptop with decent graphics capability than you would for the equivalent desktop, and you can't easily upgrade a laptop. You could get a basic laptop for office apps and web surfing, and an X-box 360 for what you'll have to pay for a gaming laptop
