I'm considering purchasing a ThinkPad R51 with the following specs:

Model 1829-LHU

P M 735, 512MB RAM, 80GB 4200rpm HDD, 15 SXGA+(1400x1050) TFT LCD, 32MB ATI Radeon 9000, CD/DVD Multi-Burner, IBM 802.11a/b/g wireless(MPCI), Modem(CDC), 1Gb Ethernet(LOM), UltraNav, Secure Chip, IEEE 1394, 6 cell Li-Ion battery, WinXP Pro

I really like every feature except I'm just not sure it would be any good for gaming with a 32MB Radeon 9000. I'm not a big gamer... but would like to have the option to play the newest games with moderate performance. How would this machine handle a game like Doom3 or Farcry? Would they even run? Any input is appreciated.

performance would be anything you can get, those 2 games are some of the most visually intense games available. Older games should play well.
