What do you consider light gaming? The base you linked too only have basic integrated graphics except the last one which has an entry level card, unless you customized them but that doesn't show in the link you provided.

Most of those units have pretty high end CPU's that your needs do not require.

valis, I see two major problems with that laptop: 2 GB RAM · 32 GB drive
2GB RAM is too little; provided it is easy to add RAM that is easily solved.
I am a miser with space but even me would have a hard time with just a 32GB hard drive. I'm not about to replace a hard drive in a new laptop. I'd surely turn it into a doorstop in short order.
