I have been researching for awhile now, and after extensive research I found this:
Graphics will handle these games at 20 - 50 fps, Diablo 3 may have a little hard time running, but you should be okay. CPU is on the slow side, but still good. Check the reviews on new egg for information and reviews. 6gb of ram with a 500gb hard drive., is plus to.

I have the Samsung NP305E5A-A05US, it runs Diablo 3 on all high settings without any problems and the graphics look great. It has the AMD A6-3420M APU in it. I haven't overclocked it and don't know if I can, but I've seen Youtube videos of gamers who have.

HP HDX16-1370US 16-Inch Entertainment Laptop

The used one under the store name "Glenns_Store" is my personal laptop that I'm selling. I've got a lengthy description on it under the listing, but it has a backlit keyboard and a nice processor & graphics card. Since a few people in this thread were interested in a good laptop for gaming I figured I'd post mine on there. I'll send pictures if you would like; it's in great condition, no scratches. It packs a P9900 Core 2 Duo 3.06ghz, nvidia GeForce GT 130m 1gb, and 4gb runs Skyrim just fine at medium settings.
Hope this helps,

Hi. Hoping you would be so kind as to help a stranger with an easy question. I really like the Samsung NP305E5A-A05US. To be specific, this one from Samsung's web site:

So I decided to buy one. I found one on Amazon and it certainly appears to be it, BUT, the seller doesn't state the "A05US". Based on the specs though, it matches idential to what Samsung states other than the seller has more RAM added. Question for you is, do you think this product is the same as your NP305E5A-A05US? I don't want to get ripped off and find that its not that same one. What do you think by reading the laptop-specs at Samsung - NP305E5A Series 3 Laptop / QUAD Core AMD A6-3420M Processor / 15.6" LED HD Display / 8GB DDR3 / 500GB Hard Drive / Multi-Format DVD±RW/CD-RW Burner Drive with Double-Layer Support / Built-in Webcam with Microphone / Bluetooth 3.0 Interface / Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium Edition 64-bit / Office 2010 Starter Edition - Blue/Silver

THANK YOU so much in advance.

You'd normally want to start a different thread for a different question.

Anyway that looks like a rip off for that price. You can get an A10 based system from a reputable store for $600 easily. That's a last gen A6 from last year running Windows 7, and it's the lowest end Samsung series, AND it's from some completely random seller. Needless to say, I don't see the point.
