I have bought from Woot two of these in older generation CPU’s, one is an AMD dual core (X130) and the other a more powerful Celeron dual core (X131). Both run Win 7. These machines are bulletproof! the AMD on has been dropped several times, yet no evidence of a problem has occurred. I have also re-done that machine with a 8gb ram & a big HD, and a fresh Win7 Ultimate. All needed drivers are on the Lenovo website… The other one has been a consistent and reliable performer I haven’t done games since “Lemmings” but I think the less complex ones may work. The touch pad requires a little getting used to but I use a trackball… I am tempted by the newer chip but I will try to resist.
