    Our integrity sells for so little, but it's all that we really have. It is the very last inch of us


    I'm not that great with tech specs myself but to me that system looks very low on RAM and seems to have a pretty small HDD.

    Generally I'd be looking for the RAM spec to be at least 2Gb and would be wary of getting anything where the RAM is measured in Megabytes.

    Not sure what your budget limit would be but if I were you I'd be looking for something with similar specs to this netbook.

    Yep. Nowhere near enough ram I'm afraid.

    Slipknot's link is pretty good but I would aim for more ram if it's in your budget. That way you'll still be good to play 2013

    Half the lies I tell aren't true


    That is not a computer for gaming in any way and does not meet any of the min specs for the game- do not buy it if you want to play any modern games.

    That's not a laptop, it's a netbook, and a very low-end one at that. You can't use netbooks for higher-end PC games like FM. My laptop has a dual-core 3 GHz CPU, 8 GB of memory, a Radeon HD 4760 GPU with 1 GB video memory, and a 500 GB HD internal + 1 TB external. Appropriate for mid-range gaming, but even that isn't enough for the latest high-end stuff. Runs FM just fine though.
