"if it is any good for gaming...."

no, it's rubbish for gaming, although the price compared to other laptops should be an indication of that ;-)

"if not how can you upgrade your graphics..."

with difficulty in a laptop. Even if you could, it would be kinda sily to buy a cheap laptop, and immediately buy an expensive graphics chip for it.
Cheaper and more sensible to just buy a decent gaming laptop in the first place...!

It is not good for games. Celerons are low end processors. On board graphics cannot be upgraded.

I don't know anything really about gaming, so can't comment on it's suitability - but -

I can tell you the graphics cannot be upgraded, as they are built onto the motherboard (as in the majority of laptops.)

forget Halo on that. Even with everything turned low/off/down etc will still be poor.
Halo & Halo CE should be played on a fast pc with good grafix.
One of the best games I have/still play!

No good for gaming, couldn't play Halo and cannot be upgraded graphics wise.
But what can you expect for the money. As an example of a gaming laptop click here but its over £1000 so you shouldn't be surprised.
