The problem I found...
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / September 13, 2007 11:37 PM PDT

Is that gaming is gaming ever when the person wrote about "light gaming." The requirements should be above this:
1. Dual core CPUs.
2. 2GB RAM.
3. 256MB 3D chipset for video. (no 950, 6150 solutions.)

It seems that you are in the quite similar situation with me ,I use my laptop for work at most time and sometime for pleasure (movie or gaming ).
I use the Gateway MT6840 ,with pretty good specifications :
15.4"-diagonal widescreen WXGA (1280 x 800) UltraBright LCD screen; Intel Centrino Duo mobile technology.
Intel Core Duo processor T2450 operating at 2.0GHz; 2MB L2 cache;
1.0GB of PC2-5300 DDR2 SDRAM memory (2 x 512MB) .
160GB 5400-rpm Serial ATA (SATA) hard drive .
The cpu is powerful and fast enough for work and gaming,and the size is good for you to take alog with you .What's mroe I am satisfied with the memory and the hard drive also. I think this is a good choice ,the price is very decnet also I bought it for $750 but a recent deal for the laptop is only $600:
Hope this helps .

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
