A $400 laptop will be plenty capable for those games listed,mostly because the max res would be like 768p even an AMD APU will run well. --- GTX Titan - PS3 - Xbox360 - Wii U - 3DS - Vita - iPhone 5 Unbiased Gamer

I think it would actually run at the mythical 144p --- Pearl Code: 0731 1228 8254 White Code: 0862 2790 1982 SSBB: 0989-1461-9542

I have no clue why people think they can pay dirt cheap prices for computers and have any expectations.... I mean $400 is about as cheap as it comes for a laptop unless you buy refurb or a really old model... --- You can buy a $500 console and a $500 computer and have two crap machines, or you can spend $1000 building your own computer and have the best of both worlds.

Preposterous things about this:
#1: "Gaming Laptop"
#2: "Do my shopping and research for me"
#3: the signature
You don't buy a $400 laptop for gaming, you buy a $1500 laptop for gaming at non-maxed settings until your hardware is outdated a few short years later.
You buy an $800 desktop and game on it for two generations of consoles, at maxed settings until near the end. That's what I suggest at least. Even if you don't want maxed settings it will last you longer and cost you less in the long run. Go to a local PC store and tell them what you want, they will build it for you, just don't get bled for extra money. --- I've a suggestion to keep you all occupied... Learn to swim.

From my experience, A10 5750 with discrete gpu will play most games respectively. HP has a model for about $730 and it comes with 1080p res screen to boot.
If you can't afford that, going with A8 without discrete gpu is under $600. It'll probably play skyrim at lower res and medium settings. This is probably the bare minimum. If you can't afford $530ish+ tax, your only option is to go back to Broodwars and Diablo 2.
