Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

It will run a lot of games but a lot depends on how intense the graphics are. My laptop is an Acer i5 with 8g RAM and a 1TB drive. It has a 4g RAM dedicated video card and for some game I barely meet the minimum requirements. A true gaming laptop should be an i7, 12-16g RAM and high-end dedicated video card with a SSD for the speed.

    As per specification it is almost good for gaming purpose, only space of HDD is not so big but only for gaming purpose it is OK. However, you did not mention for Nvidia Geforce graphics card, hope it is there. Sometimes, gaming laptops depend on resolution of games/nature of games.

    You can always research the games you are looking to play on line and see what their minimum requirements are. I'm amazed at what some of the PC specs are today for games. Laptops will always fall short compared to a desktop which is much easier to upgrade down the road.

    If you are going to purchase this, please check either it will support upgrade in future. Day by day more and more games will be launched and that time it may necessary to upgrade your laptop either in form of hardware or software.
