it's a decent gamer, it's not a beast though. The wimax is nice.. the 7200 RPM drive will make life fun, and the 650M is a decent card, iirc, it's a mid tier card, and not really one of the top of the line cards. But it'll game, and it'll game well. Overall, it's a decent machine. You can get comparable specs for cheaper, and ligher though if you're not dead set on just gaming.
 
Good until you get to the NVidia 650M. That's not a "bad" card, but it is shamed by it's successors, including some of the 7xxM cards. But it also depends on what you'll be playing. You can run Crysis 2 on high to ultra settings with the 650M, full HD resolution, and still maintain fair to good frame rates.

If you want "high end" graphics capability, look for a system with a 670M or better. ;)

Everything else in it looks pretty good though; though personally, you can get a much better WiFi card for not much more expense.
