TC if you really wan't a gaming laptop, you will have to spend up to $900 for something that can play current games decently.

Honestly for the games that you list that laptop is probably fine, I've heard of people playing FTL on intel atoms with netbooks so you should be good to go.

I'd recommend trying to get a second hand/refurbished laptop with at least a dual core if price is a real issue.

What do you think?

Games I intend to play: IWD2, MoO1-2, RA2, SMAC, FO1-2, Civ2, FTL


I suppose that machine is good competition to my Nexus 7,1

What do you mean by dual core? The 1007u is a 2 core 2 thread cpu, according to Ark.

Just stick to consoles, my god.


Now this is a crazy idea but stay with me on this. Some people may want to play games on the go. Whoa now that is a crazy idea. Did you mind just explode because I know mine just did.

We are not all 21 year olds that live with our parents and don't work for a living. Must be nice having a awesome PC man. Instead of actually playing games you use your sad tasteless existence trawling through forums posting forgetful stuff.

Think I may go get a drink or something.
