Is this Laptop any good for gaming?

I already have a pretty decent desktop but I have to buy a new Laptop now. I will continue to use my desktop for the heavier stuff but I prefer mobility. Could this play games such as Minecraft with HD textures enabled maxed out. Or how owuld it fair with the likes of say, Final Fantasy 14 A Realm Reborn.

Thanks for your time. If you know of a Laptop in the 650-700 price range that is a better pick please link me to it.

You want portability but are interested in a 17" laptop? I hate bulky laptops.

This would be infinitely better if it was in stock: http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834231001

That processor is lacking a bit imo, but it should work for games that don't demand too much...

You should aim for 3.2ghz or better me thinks.

No laptops are good for gaming.
