Hello guys!

Here is a link to the specifications of the laptop I am considering to buy.
http://

Is this laptop worth $300? It is in used but good condition.
As to what I want to do with it, well I play some games such as;
Rome total war 2
Attila total war
Thief 4
europa universalis 4
Crusader kings 2
Civilization 5, although I would not mind getting civilization 6 if this laptop can run it.
Pillars of faith.
-I wonder if this laptop would run witcher 3?
I also use it for some browsing, social media, watching movies and writing on Microsoft word.

Thank you

So I will not be able to use the dedicated graphics card for gaming?
Will it run the other games at least?
How do I know if a laptop uses IGPU rather then DGPU?

The laptop has a nVidia 930m, but it is a pretty weak dedicated GPU. See link below for some game benchmarks.

Thief 2014 should be playable at 1024x768 resolution using low graphic settings. However, The Witcher 3 is a pretty demanding game with average FPS of less than 30FPS with the lowest settings and resolution. It should be playable since it is a 3rd person game (compared to a 1st person shooter), but I don't know how enjoyable it will be.

The 930m is definitely more powerful.

Civ 6 should be playable on low settings. TW: Rome 2 should not be a problem. CK2 and EU4 are somewhat old games and I believe they use the same game engine so they should be playable.

Thank you for the awesome replies.
I used to play these games on a laptop with a 755m dGPU and i7 4 gen, 8 gb ram.
Do you think this laptop will be a down grade?
And is this laptop worth $300?

It actually has a dedicated GPU at $300? I assumed not because of the low price.

The 930m is about 50% faster than the HD 520.

Yes it does have all the specs in the link I posted.
i5, 6 Gen
8 gb ram
GeForce 930m gpu

-So do you think this would be a downgrade from my old laptop i7 (4 gen), 8 go ram, 755m Gpu?

-is it a good deal at $300?

Thank you so much.

Notebookcheck.net ranks the GT 755m slightly higher than the 940mx so the GPU is a downgrade.

The i5-6200u should perform about the same as a 4th gen dual core i7 CPU.

For $300 it is a good deal. You would need to spend $550 for laptop with a i5-7200u and 940mx.

Is it a good deal for $300?

Normally you would have to spend 400+ dollars to get a laptop like that. That is a good deal.
