If I was looking to buy a new laptop that could be used for some lite gaming, I would make sure it did not have 1. dual graphics / switchable graphics. They are problematic at the least. CPU is also important. Here is a list of CPU's and GPU's benchmarks. It will give you a rough idea of how they compare.
