The GPU isn't as good as it could be. It is an "ultra-portable" (still weighs 5 pounds) but for gaming, I'd spend a bit more for a laptop with a better GPU on other sites. Xoticpc is one.

With nVidia, in order to do any "worthwhile" gaming, people generally say you should have a x50 GT/GTX or higher card. Many will say that even those aren't all that great (hence why i put worthwhile in quotes, it all does matter exactly what you want to do with it, but since you said BF4, you are clearly looking at some new releases)
The right man in the wrong place can make all the difference in the world.
