Decent laptop?

Hello! Since my old laptop is still crashing after I have sent it 3 times for repair.. I'm thinking of buying a new one for around 500$(300-450€).
What are your opinions on this laptop?
I want to browse internet with it, and play some games like GTA San Andreas, Minecraft, Guild Wars, (Guild wars 2 maybe?)

Not a bad choice at all.

May I suggest this one as well? I liked 6GB of RAM.

I suppose that laptop's processor also has Turbo Boost ability (or overclock for that matter)?(by overclock I mean it won't overheat if you overclock it a little)

I replaced my 9 year old Dell lap top last month. After reading a lot of reviews and considering my needs I went with Lenovo Flex 15. It's only been a month but so far I'm impressed with the overall quality. Performance and battery life have exceeded expectations, and I'm enjoying W8.1 touch.

Code:
Intel® Turbo Boost Technology1 provides more performance when needed on 4th generation Intel® Core™ processor-based systems. Intel® Turbo Boost Technology 2.0 automatically allows processor cores to run faster than the Thermal Design Power (TDP) configuration specified frequency if they’re operating below power, current, and temperature specification limits.
No over heating.

I'm considering to buy the one archer recommended.
Which one is more needed, 0.2GHz faster processor or 2GB more RAM?

Well, in my opinion if you compare .2 GHz and 2 GB more RAM, then RAM will always be in a better place.

Have no other use for it so figured I'd just use as a htpc til I could make a good one. How would it work as a htpc you think? No hdmi/dvi ports on it, but meh. Would it play HD stuff ok or no since it'd be running off VGA to a 40" lcd?
