That "# DVD disc drive" is odd. Let's hope you meant it was a DVDRW drive since many of us like to copy out our files, create an AudioCD or Video DVD at times.

Second, games are ROUGH on laptops. By letting him play games on your laptop will you be upset in year two when the keys are busted off or the machine is cranky from all the heat and stress of gaming?

I have suggestions to head off the stress issues.
1. A laptop cooling pad.
2. USB keyboard and mouse so they beat on the cheap keyboard and mouse.

That's not a bad price for what you're getting.

As Proffitt said though, low-end laptops and gaming don't really mix unless you're playing very old games.

We have an older PC at home and for it's last hurrah upgrade we put in the ATI AGP 3650 card noted by Tomshardware. Its great, nice and all that but will it be enough to run games from 2009 on a 1920x1080 HD display?

Not likely. I think we'll have to scale it back a bit.

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?
