    People tend to forget that the gpu is still pretty strong considering the form factor. Its not a gaming laptop and it shouldn't be expected to be, theres another niche out there for that, but is still powerful nonetheless.

    Glad to see videos like this.

    How can you NOT call a laptop that plays all games at decent resolutions and medium to high details a gaming laptop?

    Since black ops 2 is still running pretty much the same graphics as the first modern warfare, this is unsurprising.

    Call of duty is graphically one of the worst games out there.

    I tried using an Xbox controller playing bf3 on pc because i was use to playing on console. It only took about 30 secs to realize that I was better learning to use a mouse and keyboard then using an Xbox controller. Now I feel like a newb playing cod on ps3

    fair point, you can be much more responsive learning to play the keyboard and mouse method.

    has anyone tried the COD App Store offerings, it's got Black Ops and Modern Warfare?

    Its a prosumer laptop that can run games well. It does not qualify as a gaming laptop by todays standards, which imo are Alienware and Sagers that utilize stronger GPUs but sacrifice other aspects.

    I would call those hardcore gaming laptops.
    For most people 25-30 fps are enough. Above that is only needed for extremely fast multi player games.

    For FPS games I'd like to be around 50.
