With Black Friday just around the corner and the sales already starting, Imma buy a laptop now. I was eying this.

From what I know (which admittedly isn't too much), it looks pretty good. It's also marked down a TON right now, so now would be the time.
I don't need an ultra-powered gaming laptop, but I would like to be able to handle some high-end games, at least on low settings. I couldn't care less about touch-screen laptops. I pretty much want an everyday laptop with some extra power. If this one looks bad, could you give me some tips to keep looking? My knowledge of computers is a bit rudimentary.

And yes, I posted this on two PC boards. I didn't know which one was proper :P

It will not handle high end games well. Even on low settings it's likely to dip well below 30 fps. The i5-4200U is, as the U designation suggests, an ultralow voltage CPU designed for power efficiency. The HD 4400 integrated is only something like 10% better than the HD 4000, which is decent for an Intel IGP, but only for it's for non-demanding games.

Good to know, thanks. I'll bump this a little more for any other thoughts/opinions.
