Hello Cindy, welcome to the forum. The laptop you have selected does not actually have a dedicated graphics card. Although the processor is good, the integrated graphics are not. I am assuming you are in the U.K.? I am not exactly sure what this is going for over there, but I would suggest looking for something that has a G in the model number of Acers. ExampleS would be v3-572g-XXXX, e5-572G-XXXX, E5-573G-XXXX, etc... If these are out of your price range, I would look for a laptop model with either an A10-7300 or A10-7400P APU (Processor) usually by ACER or ASUS, along with 8GB RAM in a 2x4GB configuration. Hope this helps! Let us know what you find!

I should say that the graphics are not good for gaming, but are suitable for web browsing, watching movies, older games, and generally flash games on websites, not so much for downloadable STEAM style games that would be similar to consoles.
