Looks like pretty good spec for a LT, not the best availabe but OK for most games. Keep in mind though, lots of modern gaming on a small device with much less ventilation space than a desktop can spell trouble.
Don't smoke near it, try to avoid long gaming sessions, and use an external fan cooling accessory. They can reduce heat buildup quite a bit.
Even with all the above, it's good to have a tech open it up now and then to clean the dust out, unless of course you know how to yourself.

Looks pretty good, other than your graphics card having DDR2 RAM. Most reviews will say that DDR3 performs better on graphics cards.
Thanks guys, I busted my ass to work up money for this and university. How do you think it would run top of the line games like crysis and age of conan?
I have a worse Desktop than that and I can run AoC at max 1280-1024 at 30-40fps almost everywhere. I have Pentium D 2.66ghz BFG Geforce 8600 GTS 3gbs DDR2 RAM Windows Vista Home Premium
My gfx has GDDR3 so im not sure how that card will perform. But I bet it will do fine. Now Crysis, I don't know why but it runs pretty bad, and it runs better at higher resolutions :confused:. I can play Bioshock, AoC and Stalker Clear Skies on max, but I can't with Crysis, very odd. Even if I turn everything to low.
Looks like a pretty decent system from my view, far better than the one I'm currently going to purchase. How much was this?

Looks like a very good bargain You should be able to run most of todays modern games, with the exception of crysis which you should be able to run but perhaps not all on high. As has been said overheating could be an issue, so make sure its well ventilated, and try say playing with the battery out and only with the ac adapter plugged in.
This site should give you some idea of what games you can run Can You RUN It?
I have some excellent settings/tweaks tips for Crysis if you should need them, though it won't be long before Warhead is released and hopefully if sales go well on it they will apply it's optimizations to Crysis via a patch shortly thereafter.
What Crytek failed at IMO though is deciding not to further patch Crysis script wise. There's actually more problems with it's dlls (crysoundsystem.dll, cryphysics.dll, crygame.dll) then there are with it's engine efficiency no matter what patch version you run.
my specs. are AMD athlon 64 x2 with 3Gb DDR2 2.0gHz Nvidia GeForce 7000m / nforce 610 512mb DDR2 17.1" Widescreen Realtek High Definition Audio Speakers with DolbyDigital Live 5.1 surround 250GB HDD and some other stuff Edit: You can download Nvidia Tweaker and click the GPU overwarming warning, if you don't want to be afraid of a overheated system
