Iffy

The need for gaming drops the usual hours to about 1, maybe 2 hours unless you pump a hundred or more into the battery. This is something I find gamers to have a hard time accepting.

Try the laptop choosers at the top of the forum,

Both have the Nvidia 310 video solution.

This pretty much means no high end games. Windows 7 effects and video play will be just fine.

I like the i5.
