    SO I recently got a Toshiba Satellite A505 for $400 off Ebay and I want to know how good it is in the aspect of playing PC games and Emulations and being an overall laptop

    Here are some specs
    Intel i7 processor
    Nvidia Geforce 310M
    4 GB of ram
    500gb harddrive

    So is this any good...how good is it.....did I waste my money?

    As far as gaming goes, meh.

    If you're into older games and some emulation, you'll be OK.

    For gaming, it sucks. For CPU based programs like my dad's chess program, it's pretty awesome. For general things like watching movies, emails, office work or general Internet, it's fine.

    Did you waste your money? To answer that, tell me... What did you buy it for in the first place?

    What did you expect from a $400 laptop?
