My laptop was a hp and never had any problems with it (as you should know when you had it ! – which reminds me – those stains ! ), the 7400 will be ok for the things you want then, just dont expect too much from recent games, but you should get away with things like hl2 and most games in low detail maybe even medium depending on how versitile the engine is.
8.2 out of 10…some comments from people who have it also
Sorry, I do remember you asking me to help you find a laptop, been busy as hell decorating the house now building work has been done, not had chance to use computer much
