    I just ordered an HP laptop to replace my aging Powerbook G4. I will up the RAM to 8GB which will also allow dual-channel operation, replace the HDD with an Intel 120GB 520 SSD, and dump win 8 for win 7 home premium. Now i dont expect this to play BF3 or Crysis, but i would like to game a little bit on it as i might be without my desktop for 3-5 months. I dont have any hands on experience with the AMD APU's, so i'm left to just what i read.

    Do yall think I should be able to play a few games on it, such as poker night at the inventory, CS:S, TF2, Civ 5, and GTA:VC? I'll also play world of goo, DEFCON, Worms Armagedon ect, but those i know i dont need to worry bout.

    Appreciate y'alls feedback.

    I suspect that all of those will run fine except for Civ 5--that might be stretching it.

    I think you'll be able to run those games. The HD 7600G is something like 15% better than the Intel HD4000 which handles Source engine games (L4D, CS:S or TF2) acceptable. Have fun.
