If for gaming, it isn't a very good laptop, cause the GPU is very slow. But if not, it is a very decent laptop.

Yarizmass you have to pay attention to native res. You are correct with 1080p no way he could pull those stats but perhaps on 769p or lower res.

the lenovo one,coz all the CPU's are about the same,and the GT630m is better than the other GPU's,however it is still too weak to run some games.

Actually AMD Radeon HD7670M(2GB) is slightly better than GT630m(1GB). According to GD i can run NFS MW2 in high settings in AMD 7670 but Nvidia can run it in medium settings only plus samsung's HDD is 1TB i mean thats a bonus right xD but thanks for you reply :)

That combo should play Crysis 3 on tweaked high settings at 1366x768 or medium settings at 1920x1080 with minimum 30 fps… Demanding games but less demanding than Crysis 3 like Far Cry 3 and Bioshock Infinite should run on high settings at that resolution and anything less demanding than those two game like Dishonoured and Dead Space 3 should be maxed out easily…

this paired with 635m will be playing games at medium settings nicely, 730m will do great for gaming!
