Would this laptop be decent for older games?

I'm not looking to spend 1k+ on a gaming laptop, I'd rather build a PC for less, and besides I have a console. The issue is I need a new laptop ASAP and want one that will at least play older games. I'm mostly in the mood for RTS games/old RPGs/older games and current MMOs.

Wouldn't that $538.99 be put to better use if given to the collective?

Seriously though you are probably good with that one. Some MMO's can be pretty demanding though I hear (Specifically Runescape)

I'm not really tech savvy when it comes to parts but I felt compelled to give some input after commenting on your sig.

You might be able to play Warcraft because it's so old but new MMO's? No. You're not playing GW2 or FFIV on that.

So is there any laptop out there that can play MMOs that isn't 1200+?

I don't think that's a very good of a price for that laptop. I bought a Samsung with an i7 processor, 6 gigs of ram, intel hd 4000 graphics, 750 tb hard for 575$ at microcenter last year.

I haven't seen a better price. I really don't want to shell out 1k+, theres no reason too when a god-tier gaming custom made PC is better. I didn't think I would be needing to shell out over a thousand just to get a semi-decent laptop to play WoW or FFXI.
