It's not a gamer because of the crappy Intel graphics. You're going to have to pay more for decent game play.

"Intel® HD Graphics, up to 1274 MB total available graphics memory"

Intel Graphics are no good for gaming, did you look at Jam's links ?

You need to spend more than £400.00, see Alienware:

Look for a Laptop with a IGP from the Class 1 or 2 listed here:

This may be of guidance, but anything under £550 is not worth even considering :

Not a gamer. Once again, crappy Intel graphics. You need to look for a laptop/notebook that uses either ATI or Nvidia graphics. Here's a table of over 250 mobile graphics chips listed in order of performance:

"i dont expect crysis out of it lol"

If you'd do a little research, you'll find a laptop that'll play Crysis for under $800.

MoC Yes OK Dell but the review is 12 months old, but again it is the graphics chip is older technology:

Low-Midrange Graphics Cards - Low-end graphics cards for users who want to play games. New games should run on these cards, but only with low details and mediocre resolution. The power consumption (of modern cards in this class) should lead to a good battery life.

At least a Class2 graphics Chip from this list:

Anyway here is a nice Sony:
