    "This laptop isn't good for gaming. It's a bit dated and unreliable. Asus isn't a top-tier brand. Look elsewhere."

    "The i7-7500 processor in the HP Envy makes it a contender when considering a multi-purpose laptop that's also suitable for gaming. The on-board graphics leave something to be desired, like all laptops, but fortunately they can be upgraded easily and affordably."

    "I would love to find a normal laptop that I could also play games on once in a while. Today, I looked at the HP Pavilion Power 15. This turned out to be a hardcore gaming laptop, so it is definitely not what I am looking for. I will keep searching."

    "The Core i5 processor on the Acer Aspire E5 isn't the best money can buy but it'll get the job done if you're looking for a mid-range, multi-purpose laptop. I've been using mine to play the Sims while I'm at work. My boss thinks I'm working on my presentation."

    "A very basic laptop that would be great for a first time user. Only negative about this laptop is that is it cheaply made(as always you get what you pay for)"

    "Although Asus makes very reliable computers, I really would not use this computer for gaming. In my opinion, you would need something stronger with more memory. It is okay for light gaming but for nothing more."

    "This laptop is older. It has a 2-core 2.40 GHz and and i5. No reviews. And the price is nearly 3K. Um, no. Look elsewhere. It is hard to find a normal laptop that will pay any games other than a hidden object search or other casual, and this certainly isn't it."
