I was running Ace on a PC from 2003 with no issues.

How do I know if a laptop can get the right resolution?
Philip's smart he beat the brain, I wonder if he'll beat us too someday.
But, I'm not gonna wait around to find out, I'll just keep on riding this wave.

Check the technical details and find the screen resolution

Run? Sure...run SMOOTHLY, eh....I doubt it. While the latest RPG maker isn't that demanding, the CPUs in those laptops are clocked pretty low, many of them below 2 GHz.

What if it has dual or more cores? Would that help?

They're all going to be dual cores, but that won't help, as RPGM only runs one thread.
Being a Core i3 would help, though, just because it's better than a Penium or Celeron for reasons.

That is helpful. Five of them so far have met the criteria including the i3 but none have more than the right resolution. That is weird that you need a certain resolution to run it.

IIRC, it doesn't start up with a resolution below 1024x768, and doesn't correctly fit on screen in windows vista/7/8 at that resolution because it was designed, originally, to fit a 1024x768 Windows 98 screen.

Edit: decided to try something out. Using small icons and classic theme, it fits just fine on 1366x768.
