Here is a gaming demo video of the Lenovo IdeaPad U550 playing Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 and Wolfenstein. The IdeaPad U550 runs on Intel's low voltage Core 2 Duo SU7300 CPU but it has dedicated ATI Mobile Radeon HD 4330 with 512MB graphics. The laptop has 4GB memory, 320GB hard drive and a DVD drive.
As you can see in the demo video, the Lenovo IdeaPad U550 handles graphics demanding games like Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Wolfenstein quite well as long as you turn off the fancy effects. With all effects turning to ?low? settings in Wolfenstein the games played at about 28 fps on average and the cutscenes at 30 fps which means the game was very playable. Modern Warfare 2 played at about 17-20 fps with effects turned on and 30-45 fps with most effects turned off except ragdoll and bullet impacts turned on. Here is the video:
