That's a nice laptop, games will run but your "gamer" will not be happy.

In reply to: Does not seem awesome.

its recomended that?

CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad 3.66GHz or equivalent
Card (GPU): 1GB NVIDIA GT 480+ or 1 GB
ATI+Hard Disk Space: 40 GB free
HDDOperating System: Vista SP 2 or Window 7 SP 1
Apart from the quad core it looks like im in the clear? or is it just screwing with my head.

The 480 noted is steps above the 630 in that laptop.

You can play the game but will have to reduce settings to get the speed up.

Looks nice but same GPU with more RAM.

Keep in mind I'm talking GAMERS that will complain. Folk that will put up with less eye candy and settings turned down will be OK.
