Assuming high-ish quality settings:

Q3: Probably 70-100 fps

QL: Going to be less, still going to get destroyed on maps like Siberia

You need to find someone or some review with the same graphics card and similar processor (within 0.2 GHz). This website may help. http://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-Graphics-Media-Accelerator-GMA-4500M.20379.0.html

Well it's better than the one you picked, and is under $500. Not gonna be 125 steady fps.

Just remember that since it's a laptop, you're going to be paying somewhere around 2.5 times as much as a desktop with similar performance. So if you spent $500 on a good desktop, it's probably as good as a $1250 laptop, assuming you have a monitor&STUFF.

Sunny, I think for a desktop you probably want to put in your own graphics card. The whole process can be annoying, but rewarding. The card will be an additional $50 to $100, but you can buy a desktop cheaper than the one you found, as long as it supports the card. It takes some looking around but you can get a pretty badass system for under $500 (including the graphics card). One of the best bang for your buck graphics cards I believe is the Radeon HD 4670. It once sold for $49, but I think it actually costs more now. Just for comparison, the card performs 4.1x better than the one in rush's laptop (no offense) in the PassMark benchmark, which is a good indication on how it will perform in games. http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/gpu_list.php

ofc a dedicated video card smokes an integrated, thats not big news. he just said he wanted under 500 and something easy to get going, so i suggested that.

Yeah, but there's no way that a Mobility 4250 can maintain 125 fps in QL with decent settings, and the Mobility 4250 is the best card any of us have seen in a laptop under $500.

By decent settings I mean:

native resolution (definitely not less than 1280x720)
geometry detail- medium
texture- Ultra or high
Lightmap on
Post process: on or off
bloom: off
