Looking to buy a cheapish laptop for a 13 year old boy who'd like to play games on it.

Could I get advice on whether people think this one would be up to the job?

The graphics card is not up to much.I re3ckon if he wants to play games with it a cheaper laptop would be the Acer 5920G with it,s own dedicated nVidia graphics. I can play Left for Dead 2 quite happily with it. It's a new game so the lappy is pretty decent in my experience. The G in the model is important.

thanks for the feedback

I think I've whittled it down to either the Acer 5741 or the Samsung R530.

Would either of them be good enough for gaming?
