Summary: This machine would be a justifiable gaming desktop replacement. Packs 512mb plus dedicated VRAM (Video Random Access Memory) for the main purpose of playing high end games. Surely no downtime with this machine. Of course this isn't a machine you would want to take on long excursions since the battery life on this isn't the best. Mostly meant for a direct AC connection. So if your looking for a gaming laptop, this is a decent choice.
