    You need a laptop with a dedicated graphics card, more RAM(at LEAST 2 more gigs), and a nice CPU.

    You will not find what you are looking for at wal mart.

    EDIT: give us a money amount and we'll dig around. How much will you have to spend after returning that and how much extra you got to spend.

    Laptops aren't very good for gaming use. If you wanting to game then I suggest a PC and I would suggest building one too as its cheaper. Laptops are very difficult to upgrade or isn't possible. I'm currently looking for a new gaming PC, it will take time because I want to make sure I get the best value. 

    Get a PC which as a minium graphics card of a Geforce GTX 560 or more which DDR3 RAM 8GB and a good prosessor 2.9MHz. Which sould be fairly cheap, and if you're only playing MMOs thats all you'd need really.

    Be sure to research and look up, and be sure to take your time you wouldn't want to spend a lot of money then find you'd could have bought it £200 or $400 cheaper.

    Just the cheapest I can get away with.  I wasn't saving for this it's an unexpected present out of blue.  I don't have a PC store here that's why peeps do Walmart.  We got Best Buy.  That's it.  Thx all I get the feeling after this we're going to get into install this and that talk and I"m to tired for it.  I knew this dude once who got a pc at Best Buy and there wasn't anything he couldn't play.  He did nothing to make it work.  I'm tired and going to bed now.  Thx.

    The basic theme of that laptop is it's based on AMD's netbook chip.  And then it's a salvage part that disables one of the processor cores because it's defective, so AMD gives it away for next to nothing.

    If you want a really cheap laptop that can more or less run most games, then see if you can find a Llano system on clearance.  For example:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834215257

    Actually, if you can get a refund rather than just an exchange, then do that and buy the laptop I just linked.

  • QuizzicalQuizzical Posts: 14,772Member Uncommon

    Just to give a quick comparison:

    Processor:  A6-3420M has four cores.  E-300 has one core.  Each core in the A6-3420M is faster all by itself than the entire E-300, too.

    Graphics:  A6-3420M has four SIMD engines and 8 ROPs.  E-300 has one SIMD engine and four ROPs.  I think the E-300 is clocked slightly higher, but only slightly.

    So the laptop I linked will get you about quadruple the gaming performance of the one you got.  It's likely around the same price, too.

    The laptop I linked is not a high end gaming laptop by any means.  Surely you don't expect that for $350.  But nearly any game will be playable at low to moderate graphical settings.  WvWvW in GW2 probably won't be, but that's the only exception that I know of off hand.
