Re: is this laptop any good for playing the rome total war game
I doubt you'll be able to run Rome well, if at all.
You'll need at least 512MB RAM, and that graphics card isn't good enough for anything. Get a dedicated one with at least 128MB, preferably 256MB.
That laptop is not a gaming machine, if it's games you want, avoid it.
Master of common sense. If you don't like it, stop reading.
