Exactly the same specs as my T410, except for the screen is smaller (1366x768 vs 1440x900)and I also added 8 GB ram.
The most recent game I've played on it is BioShock (that's 2007, I think), more or less because I haven't bought any new games since, but it ran just fine.
I've also ran:
Halo CE and 2
Far Cry (With AMD 64 patch, of course)
Call Of Duty
Sins of a Solar Empire
Ghost Recon Advanced Warfighter
Of course these are all at least six years old and older, but the HD in the 520m i5 works ok. . similar to a Radeon 9600 with 128 MB
What's the point of a signature? Everyone can see who wrote this, over there, to the left.

Anyone interested in giving me a comparison against this HP for $75 more?

P.S. It's an LED screen, not an LCD as written by poster above.
I think you are confusing the screen and back-lighting technologies; it is a Liquid Crystal Display but is using the newer Light Emitting Diode matrix as a light source instead of the earlier fluorescent tubes which are much more limited in life span and require an inverter to supply the ionizing voltage. This latter system, once used in all notebooks is more prone to failure than LEDs.
In the same vein, TVs using LCD displays are also becoming common with LEDs as their light source.
