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

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.

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.

-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.

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.
