Has been a solid performer for years and has handled most of the things I threw at it including early versions of Star Citizen and Space Engineers, I can still run EvE Online (doesn't like the character creator though) and Skyrim SE also runs but is a bit glitchy now. Getting a bit long in the tooth though and in the Lenovo Ideapad Z500 it's hard wired in and can't be swapped out so I guess I'm shopping for a new laptop soon but this one will remain as a back-up/light use laptop.

It was great 5 years ago when I needed a rendering laptop for architecture school. It still works okay, but is very outdated compared to modern gaming requirements. I'm using it now for streaming tv.
