Recommending the Razer Blade is just being cruel. No one in their right mind would pay for that thing and expect gaming performance.

OP: The one with the Intel HD 3000 is your best bet depending on the game. But that's if you can get good drivers for it. Although I'm pretty sure the Pentium will mean that it's not going perform as well as it could.

So really it's getting a xxxx series Intel chip and either the Intel 3000 or 310m. Neither are going to do that great.

From your list I'd go with the Z360 with an i3 and 310M graphics.

Only 2nd gen i3/i5/i7 have HD 3000 graphics. All the 1st gen, and 2nd-gen Pentium/Celeron have GMA HD graphics (equivalent to HD 2000). Basically get the Z360 w/ 310M, a 2nd-gen i3, or AMD A4/A6 as the absolute minimum for gaming. Nvidia 310M isn't bad, but it's roughly HD 3000 performance (kind of pointless with Intel and AMD having IGP's with the same performance). Anyway, HD 3000/310M can play a lot of games on low, Source games on medium probably.

Anyways, what's your budget like? Lenovo has a few 14" systems at $500 with decent graphics. Of course for ~$700 and you can get something close to a "gaming" laptop from Lenovo.

Between the ones listed, either the lenovo Z360 or lenovo G460

But you're still going to be disappointed with the graphical capabilities of the 310m. I have it in my laptop (which has a slower CPU, an i3-330UM which is only a 1.6GHz), and the 310m is really only capable of playing TF2 on low settings at 1336x768, and I think it did play COD4 on low settings.

I wouldn't suggest it for a "gaming" laptop. A general use laptop that you might occasionally use to load up a game and play on low settings? Yeah, I could see that. Otherwise, no.

What is your budget? And is there a reason why all the laptops you're looking at are lenovo?
