Default Good Enough for gaming?

Anyone know if my Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family(Display Adapter) is good enough for any games? If so which ones? Thanks!

The Intel mobile Graphic chip is not good for gaming at all.
it's not even meant for gaming in the first place.

For anyone reading and was wondering if to get the above, go for a AMD Apu, it's the new generation for tight budget gamers.

Agreed. I have the chipset on my Inspiron 15R, and I can BARELY play Left 4 Dead 2, and that's with the settings on absolute minimum. If you want gaming, don't get a laptop, get a desktop. Trust me: Been there, done that....

No offense, but I don't trust AMD; their CPU's have an awful life span....

What problems have you had with AMD CPUs? I have been using AMD religiously for years and never had a problem.
