    Much good enough regarding the spec for to run any version of available Windows OS's, Linux Distros, or whatever OS is vailable for a PC in 32bit and 64bit! In 64bit it could a little improve while expanding the Memory (RAM) to more like 8GB, 12 GB, 16GB or even 32GB! And if you're a 'Speedfan' a SSD would even do more!

    Is this PC sold as being 'new'..?
    It looks outdated.
    Graphics card is sold only as OEM (not sold seperatly) and is low level.
    CPU is marketed in Q1 2013.
    Memory 1600 MHz is sort of outdated.
    500 GB HD is (too) small if sold in a new PC.

    I assume this is a budget PC.
    Don't pay too much... ;)

    Edit: it's a laptop, oke.

    It is all about what the user would do with the PC! For 'normal' work, it's much more than enough.

    For sure, if someone is an Benchmark Freak, he would never be satisfied by any available hardware, it would be never good enough!

    And also, anything is cost MONEY, money what many user's didn't have for to just play around with the latest hardware to impress others, without the really need to have that latest stuff!

    Then why did you ask if it is good or not? You seem to be happy with it so why ask "if you already know" it is good for your intended purposes. Now, I will throw out one more thing I don't like about your rig and that is the fact that it contains an "unstandard" RAM arrangement of 6GBs. As stated by pisthai, it should either be a 4 or 8GB arrangement. Also, good luck when you play Battlefield4. I hope you can get above 10FPS.

    @pisthai: How true; however, since his benckmarks are just slightly above the capabilities of an integrated graphics solution, I would strongly consider them as part of my overall purchase decision. Also, the fact that his graphics solution benchmarks about the same as a GeoForce 8800 GTS, clearly indicates it is not capable of running "all" new games at a reasonable frame rate.

    If you are referring to my comments, you are dead wrong! You asked if this was a good PC. I tried to respond with some great detail thinking you were making a purchase decision. Then you dispute those comments. Please don't try to go that route and try to make someone else look bad who just tried to help you. Good day to you and good bye!

    UPDATE: Just to confirm why I don't like your 6GB unstandard arrangement. This is simply manufacturing gone cheap! What they do is purchase a bunch of 2GB modules (that nobody is buying) and they include them in their custom configuration. However, since many never exceed the 4GB limit, they are rarely used. Moreover, this configuration is normally offered by many "build your own rig" companies that have gone cheap as well. Now, the biggest downside of your specific arrangement is you have lost "dual-channel capabilities" due to not having "matching RAM pairs." Good luck to you.

    "Dual" means two (a pair) since the ancient greece.

    And we have a pair here. Therefore, etc.
