    The ram is certainly good enough and the processor being an i7 should definitely be fine. (Gimme ;-;) But we'll need to see your graphics card too!

    I don't have a graphics card (I think) it is just a laptop that I got.

    Well everyone has a graphics card! It's just that, if you're thinking that you most likely have an Intel graphics card which is integrated. There's a way to check (you can google it) and if so then you will be able to run close to nothing, like me! :P

    Yep what he said. Sorry but you're pretty much out of luck for anything too great.

    That model is from Summer 2012, mine is from Winter 2014 or 2015.

    That's when you bought it, but it looks like it was manufactured in 2012. Did you buy it new or used? Did you upgrade from 4GB ram or did it come out of box with 8GB? Did it come with windows 7?

    The CPU model is from 2012, and the IGP that comes inside it also is, so it doesn't matter if the laptop was assembled in 2050 or yesterday.

    The computer was from 2015. It was a laptop that my dad used in which he allowed me to trade from my old one (2013). It came with 4gb of ram but I upgraded it to 8gb of ram.

    (My dad didn't really care about the trade because he uses a computer for simple tasks, which is why he also has a chromebook).

    In terms of Graphics; It's most likely Intel HD 3000+ ..... Meaning gaming is possible, but expect tons of frame drops, or no compatibility. Hence. that laptop seems perfect for Productivity, Videos, Browsing, coding, etc. But, not for any heavy gaming. IE: Overwatch, Doom 4, or any Graphically intensive game. You can most likely get Windows 10 Games working, like Minecraft Windows 10 Edition, or Asphalt 8. I have a Wacom Tablet/Laptop, but I only use it to Watch, and code from time to time. My desktop is my main PC.

    I have Intel HD 3500. So, I get 60fps. But that's the Optimized version (Windows 10 Edition); the PC version runs on Java. The worst language for games.

    The Java version won't even run on my Intel HD 3000, W10's display driver isn't compatible but this same PC could play the java version on W7 and W8. Now it can only play the optimized version that I refuse to pay for.

    Cough I have an Intel HD 3500 Cough .... Try the Windows 10 Edition. It runs excellent for low end hardware. It's far more optimized; and I think it's running on C# or C++.

    C'est la vie, one can stick to their principles, to their wallet, or to easy-life.
    I don't think choosing easy-life is something to be proud of, but sure just paying is easier.

    Wait; what are you referring to? :unsure:

    EDIT:

    Intel CPU Specs
    Seems this CPU has Intel HD 4000 Graphics; not shabby.

    ~You can also overclock it to 3.00Ghz.
