How good is this Laptop?

Im looking for a new laptop because I will be starting college in a few months. Im looking for a good school computer but also a good gaming one for my spare time as well. This is the laptop I was looking at:

 

HP - 15.6" Pavilion Laptop - 6GB Memory - 750GB Hard Drive

 

SPECS:

http://www.bestbuy.com/site/HP+-+15.6%22+Pavilion+Laptop+-+6GB+Memory+-+750GB+Hard+Drive+-+Steel+Gra... 

 

Here's the website for the specs because of the quantity of material in it, it would be to much for me to write down.

But I can say that it has a 2.5GHz processor, 16GB RAM, 750GB Hard Drive Size, AMD Radeon HD 6620G graphics, Up to 3061MB video memory, Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit, ETC!!!

Re: How good is this Laptop?

This computer, although a good one, has integrated graphics that uses shared system RAM for video memory.  As such, it will not be a great gaming machine. It will perform superbly for your school work and realted functions, but gaming will not be as good.  It does have a very good processor and a good graphics solution, but it is integrated graphics and not discrete.

 

A very good all round laptop, just not a great gaming machine.  Casual gaming will be pretty good, but running the latest games at high rame rates probably isn't going to happen. 

 

If you can live with that, it is a good deal.
