That's not a bad lappy. It's not a gamer by any means though. The Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 4500M may play some of today's games at their lowest settings.

The BBY Software Installer is Best Buys proprietary software that allows you to browse a selection of software titles and install them.

Wireless-B+G+N is the wireless internet standards it is able to use. Most use B/G, where N is a newer and faster wireless connection.

Intel graphics are pretty sub par for gaming. CSS and Half Life 2 maybe, but anything more tends to choke

Well yea, 2.2GHz is a bit faster than 2.13GHz. But I really don't think you'd notice.
