Rather than that go for HP PAVILLION G6 2010AX

This has 1tb hdd and 6gb ram as opposed to 500 and 4 respectively in the one you listed !
And moroever has the exact same gpu and cpu combo !
It just does not have preinstalled windows, unless thats a must for you don't go for the g6 2301 model !

Other than this teh 2301 has inferior battery and if you are wondering about the extra 1gb vram then let me assure you that with a gpu like hd 7670m 1 or 2gb vram won't make any difference to the performance you get while gaming ! thumb.gif

great little unit for gaming, the dual graphics function will definitely come in handy, battery life wont be anything amazing particularly in the games your looking at but you will most likely get away with a decent FPS on low-medium settings with textures down etc..

dont you live in india ? HP service is not very good in india. i owned an HP desktop and my experience with their service was not very good. maybe some cheap samsung alternative would be good ?
this one looks good to me

To be honest all laptop manufacturers don't have satisfactory service in india, and moreover at least 5 of my friends have bought 2010ax and haven't faced any issues yet so i would still suggest it as it sold very well and the user reception has been good, so it can be trusted !
