GT525M (1GB)/ Intel B960 (dual core)/6GB RAM - good enough?

by GJIG / November 13, 2012 10:21 PM PST

My sister is looking for a gaming laptop under 500 €. That's a rather low budget so I've been looking for something that will run pretty much any game with a decent framerate on at least the lowest graphics settings. I stumbled upon a 499 € Fujitsu Lifebook AH531 with the above-mentioned specs, it looks... kind of promising, but I'm not sure. Does this seem like reasonable purchase? The GT 525M seems like it barely meets the requirements, but I've no idea if the processor is good enough.

It will run games.

But your "gamer" will complain. But at least it will run. Be sure to seek out benchmarks on this laptop at notebookcheck too.
