I have a somewhat low-end toshiba laptop that can run dead space on low settings (it was able to play portal 2 on low settings). I used it for things other than gaming (like school). Here are the specs- windows 7, amd phenom II trip-core N850 (2.2 ghz), 4 gb DDR3 ram, ati radeon hd 4250. But I also have a powerful gaming laptop that I usually use to play games. Iím thinking of playing it on my low-end laptop so I donít have to constantly switch between laptops, but I am worried that playing deadspace will wear out the laptop faster and cause it to ďdieĒ early. Will it actually make a difference?

Thanks.

No, playing games on a laptop will not cause it to wear out more quickly.

Have you tried turning it off and on again?
