Hello! Just to put my two cents in, I run the specs you see to the left. I dual boot to windows and play games like Half Life 2, Flatout 2, Path of Neo, Garrys Mod (for HL2) CounterStrike, and many many others with no problem at all. Half Life 2 runs on highest graphics and very very rarely lags. Flatout 2 is flawless on highest graphics. I think people underestimate the power of the integrated graphics. Granted, you're probably not going to get F.E.A.R or anything like that on there, but there are alot of games out there that will run just fine. Have fun!
