How good does it need to be to play Facebook games?
I never bother with them but would think a pretty basic machine would do it?

OP. what's your current device?

Some of them are surprisingly demanding. Obviously a dedicated graphics card/high-end CPU isn't necessary but some of the entry-level ULV CPUs might struggle.

some of them are very cpu/memory intensive - farmville for example

sorry was dealing with sick child.

To answer your question we'll need more details:
- What is the model number of your current computer? (to make sure your current system is/isn't up to the task).
- What is your budget to spend on a new system?

That's nice but as SM says model numbers and budget please. Saying you have a Hp laptop is a bit like saying you have a Ford. That could be anything from a 40 year old Escort to a brand new Supercharged Mustang. Details DO matter thanks.

model number 15-ba033AU

Cool. That laptop uses a pretty slow entry-level quad core CPU. Upgrading would definitely make a big difference.

What's your budget?

markandtarsh, Jun 13, 1:54pm
1000 and less probaly

15-BW049AU currently $741 @ noel leeming is that a good model

I wouldn't recommend it as the CPU wouldn't be much of an upgrade in terms of performance.

I'd be looking at something like this. It has a slightly smaller screen than your 15" laptop but it has a good CPU for everyday tasks, and an SSD which will make it fly. It's only a 128GB SSD, if you wanted to spend a bit more you could get the 256GB model.

I'd get PB Tech to add another 4GB of RAM too - it's a cheap upgrade.
