The 15-B168CA still doesn't have the power to play games smoothly at native resolution, for that you'll need a more performance oriented system like the HP Pavilion M6-1188CA. The 15-168CA's battery performance was kind of short, at 3 hours 19 minutes. Contrast this with the HP Pavilion M6-1188CA with almost six hours or the Samsung Series 3 with over five hours.
