Some games will; some won't. Some reason you don't consider an I3? Just trying to go the cheapest route?

The B830 will likely be bundled with very weak video chip that will hold ya back even more.

Thanks for quick reply.
If I go I3 will it overcome the very weak video chip?

No, but will be a help in some games. You need to tell us what games you're interested in and your budget.

A laptop that does decent gaming will cost something like 1,000 bucks at minimum. You in school? Parents paying for this? You footing the bill?

Not a put down but we could use some answers to help you.

You have a particular laptop in mind? Some special game you want?

Okay, I am a grandparent trying to help my son get a notebook for a ten-year old, hence the frugality.

The type of games my grandson plays are of the Minecraft genre. I was up to a $400.00 notebook, but based on my conversation with you I would like to get to a netbook closer to $250. My son bought a Samsung notebook, but it is a chrome book, and apparently does not support games that can be run on Microsoft OS, hence he returned it to Amazon today.
Based on what you have told me, I suspect we can get away with an atom processor netbook. My only concern is that they only have 1g of RAM.
Based on all this what do you suggest?

Don't get netbook, chrome book is much worse than a netbook (it use smartphone/tablet processor and very limited storage space). Google designed chrome OS with cloud in mind. Netbook was designed for simple common and light tasks like web surfing.

Too bad this one is out of stock

Also this one is great for under 400 bucks

If you can do something in the $400 range, look around for any of the machines kuwese suggested or something similar. They're good investments and should last the young man for several years.

My laptop is a Samsung with an A4-3300M APU and although I don't game much on it, it does handle anything I've tried. I gave about $400 for it back in March and, if a similar laptop is to be found now, would probably be 100 bucks less.
