I purchased this laptop and played SC2 on medium settings 4v4 multiplayer and it would slow down when every one had a descent amount of units, but it plays 4v4 flawlessly on low settings.

No ports for a docking station. Best option would be a USB powered port replicator if they are available.

No, it doesn't have back-lit keys, but the brightness of your computer can easily light up your keyboard at night or in the dark but it can also be very dim.

I literally just installed Skyrim and tried it out on low graphics. Just a heads up, this computer will not play hardly any game on anything above low graphics, the game or your computer will crash if you attempt to much with it. This is a great, fast, budget laptop but it is not the best when it comes to playing games :(. As for Skyrim, it runs with slight lag on medium quality, but perfectly on low. Hopw this helped!

This computer can connect wirelessly to a wifi source. All you need for that is a router. It can also connect to a wall socket by use of a LAN cable. By hard wire, do you mean LAN?

answer 2
The only current option for connecting to the internet without having a DSL, Cable, or Dialup connection in your home is by using Broadband internet, which connects through cell phone towers. You will need a Broadband adapter for this PC and Broadband internet service, which is available from most phone providers.

I struggled with the same question, my friend. After much research I came out with this:
Intel
Good for multi-tasking
Plays casual games
Surfs the web easily
Graphics cards suck
AMD
Slower processor but with turbo booster
Better graphics cards
Excellent for watching and editing HD video
Good for some 3D games
I personally went with AMD because they have a MUCH better graphics card and the processor really isn't all that slow with turbo boost. Hope this helped!

answer 2
Intel and AMD are competing processor manufacturers and have a few subtle differences in how their processors operate. Choosing between AMD and Intel processors is mostly a matter of personal preference. Hewlett-Packard supports both types of processors and does not recommend one over the other.
