    Hi everyone,

    I have a friend looking to sell his Dell XPS L502x (from around 2011). It has a GeForce 540M with the Intel i7-2720QM and 8GB of RAM.

    I'm mainly looking for an inexpensive laptop to play new-to-me games on the likes of Diablo 3, Skyrim, Doom 3, and Starcraft 2. I also like emulation (Gamecube and older). Would this be able to handle that?

    What would you suggest as a fair price to buy this?

    In a word, no.

    In a few more words, the games may play, but you'll be lucky to get 30fps at 720p and low/medium in those games.

    For less than $700, this will absolutely destroy the machine your friend is offering.

    TBH, I wouldn't pay more than $100-$150 for the one with the 540M.
