    I do not think that you need to worry about the performance so much. It is well enough to even handle some older games with around 20-40 FPS even in 800x600 res! :-)

    But I suppose that you did not buy this laptop only to play games with it?

    You might want to read the GPU Guide, but you might wish you hadn't.

    Intel graphics cards are the weakest cards on the market, and the GMA (the graphics card found in the 945GM chipset) will only be able to handle games that are at least a few years old. Speaking from personal experience...you may have to turn down the graphics on some titles, but things like FarCry/Halo/NeverwinterNights/Oldblivion would work well...while newer games can and will choke.

    But for 'non-gaming' uses, that card is as good as any other out there...and it helps to get you a much better battery life (the original design goal was low powered solution for general applications).
