Metro 2033 ran fine on a simple Nvidia 525m GPU so that should be fine. Unless your gamer wants to put all the settings on high.
The usual caveats about gaming laptops still apply here. You know you are pushing your luck by gaming on laptops as to life span and such.
I'm going to buy a laptop and I want to get an amd laptop, so in my country this one is the only amd laptop for now:
HP Pavilion DV6-6c11ea
CPU: A6-3430MX 1.70GHz/2.40GHz (4MB L2 Cache)
Graphics card: ATI-AMD Radeon HD 7690M with 1GB DDR3
RAM: 6GB DDR3 1333MHz
HDD: 750GB, 5400, SATA
USB: 2x USB 2.0, 2x USB 3.0
OS: Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit installed ready to use
Speakers: "Beats" audio technology, developed in collaboration with Dr. Dre
Security: Sensor that stops the hard drive when detecting sudden movements
Would this cpu be able to play games like Alan Wake, Crysis, Crysis 2, Skyrim, Aion, Cataclysm, Battlefield 3, Metro 2033. Or it would often give me choppy performance when I play those games on 1366x768 and medium to high settings? It also uses TurboCore so that it increases to 2.4 GHz whenever a game needs it, is it something like intel's turbo boost?
