    I believe that the integrated graphics on your computer takes it out of contention... :(

    It won't work, or rather, if you somehow managed to get it up and running, it would be unplayable.

    On the other hand...time for an upgrade? You won't need the latest or greatest hardware to play Skyrim, now that it is almost 2 years old. Even the bottom of the line MBA should be able to play it on at least medium settings.

    This was an upgrade from my T500 ThinkPad. I don't have the money for a new laptop. I'm gonna build a gaming PC rig when I get a job, I'm living on a high schooler's budget, AKA $0
