For 999USD my son picked this up last month.
It's a little less today. See this page on it's GPU:
Just bought a new laptop but I don't know if it's the right one and as a ~$900 investment I want to be sure. I bought it on the advice it was a low-price laptop that would perform basic functions needed for university (ie. word etc.) but also be able to perform at a basic-intermediate level of gaming (nothing too taxing, minecraft etc.). Before I open it up and get started I wanted to get a confirmation that it should be able to do these things. I'm not great with computers, so any help would be greatly appreciated!!
As far as I can tell, this is all the information I have:
-it is a "HP-15-AC628TX 15" notebook"
-6th Gen. Intel Core i5-6200U Processor (2.3 GHz)
-1TB Hard Drive
-8192 MB DDR3 SDRAM
-DVD+RW Optical Drive
-WLAN and Bluetooth
-DTS Studio sound
Not sure how much of that is relevant or if anything is left out but any help based off of that would be awesome!
