    1. Yes. The graphics cards of both models are decent. Not monster performance but over-all pwede naman. You might just need to tinker with the settings to get optimal playing experience.

  1. sir carlo mag rereview po ba kayo nito? planning to get one because of decent specs and form factor but still having second thoughts.

  2. hi! Good day po.. I’m looking for an affordable laptop to buy. For now I’ll use it on basic office needs, but I would like to buy something that I can eventually install Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. I saw an Asus x450ca-wx008h, it’s already an i3 and has 4GB and 500GB for memory and storage respectively and its under Php 20k only. I was checking out reviews about the unit, but I can’t find one. So I’m not sure if I should buy it. 😀 I hope anyone can give me a review about the model, or can recommend a laptop under Php 20k that can satisfy my needs. 🙂 Thank you in advance. 🙂
