That's very low end for a notebook. How much are you paying for this?

What the hell is a screw?

I certainly agree that the graphics card is nowhere near great for a laptop, I guess for that price range it is fine, but even with that you're not gonna get decent frame rates on games. Typically, very low end laptops, even with a dedicated graphics chip are not for games/not worth it.

8400m gs isnt that great either
laptop's arent noted for their games performance unless you get a dedicated games laptop
