Maybe you/your brother (unclear who this thread is for) should start playing the games before thinking you need programs... Since it's a laptop I'm assuming you're not connecting another monitor, because if you would then you could just have bought an actual computer for half the prize and double the performance.
Most games takes up the whole display, not much point in having a program in the background if you can't easily access it (ALT+TAB is really annoying on laptops, too much flickering).

As for which programs you should get, well, when I play ESO I have Excel up with various spreadsheets keeping track of my shit. Other than that it's the occasional walktrough or something, so Chrome is also recommended.

Programs tend to have a purpose, unless you have something that needs to be solved it's really hard recommending programs...

Thanks for the reply.
It is a laptop for my bro so I want to set everything up for him.
He bought it cuz he's travelling a lot, and he only does light gaming like CoD 5 and BF 4

i would not call BF4 "light gaming" but i guess im just nitpicking there...its a pretty hardware-heavy game...

My computer which I built 6 years ago, with parts that was already dated is still faaaaaar far far superior than any commercial laptop you get today. You can't compare a half-shitty desktop to a laptop. Unless your brother spent 4 times than you did on your desktop, it'll probably barely run BIOS.

The quotes are more superior.
i3 5005U (hyper-threading) + 4gb ram + 940m 2gb can run bf4 on medium about 40fps stable probs

Superior quotes is pretty superior.
But yes, those specs are probably fine. We're still all wondering what kind of programs you're after.

I use steam and origin if I want to play EA games, I will occasionally use uplay however I have found it to be horrible rubbish. Get what you need if steam has all the games you want just get steam, if origin also has some games you want get both. There is no generic list of programs every gamer should have.
