    Hey everybody, happy new year.

    Saved up and bought a laptop on black friday. Based on its reviews I expected it to run games smoothly at high settings but it seems to have some trouble even at medium settings on certain games. Here's the specs...

    Processor: 4th Generation Intel Core i7-4700MQ Processor (2.40GHz 1600MHz 6MB)
    Display: 15.6" FHD LED Glare Wedge 1920x1080
    Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GT755M (SLI) GDDR5 2GB
    Memory: 16.0GB PC3-12800 DDR3L SDRAM 1600 MHz
    Hard Drive : 1TB 5400 RPM + 24GB SSD
    Optical Drive: Ultrabay SLI Graphics - NVIDIA GeForce GT755M (SLI) GDDR5 2GB
    Network Card: Intel 7260 b/g/n Wireless (2x2 BGN)
    Battery: 6 Cell 72 Watt Hour Lithium-Ion

    I bought 3DMark during a steam sale and ran some of the tests. It got destroyed on the high end test and did 'ok' on the home pc test. I don't know if this helps much but here's a link to the results for the home pc test.

    Thank you

    Stupid question but have you installed the latest graphics card drivers? It won't come with the latest.
