I would say Max settings, but I am not shure about your intel gpu... Beter try on Medium settings and you will get 45+ fps

Ya this is a laptop and my dad only had a $500 budget so this was the best I could do (at least the best that I saw available at the place I went to get it) :(

For $500 it isn't bad laptop, the CPU is very nice. Games before 2012 will be playable! ;)

According to the Can I Run It section, I should be able to max out HL2:E2. So why is it whenever I set a Source game to max settings on native resolution, I get major FPS drops? (As in, complete max. AntiAliasing, Shadows, etc.)
