Just ordered a new Laptop...

Well I ordered Dell's new ultraportable Inspiron 700m. It's not a gaming machine by any stretch of the imagination, but I think I will try picking up an old Ghost Recon and maybe a few others if you think they will run.

 

It's running the newest 1.6 ghz Centrino with the 2mb L2 cache, 768mb Ram, 30gb HD, and unfortunately 64mb shared Intel Extreme Integrated graphics. I have heard of people playing Doom 3 on it at very low settings, but I don't intend to try running the latest & greatest. You all know how much I love GR, so aside from some of those older games, any other recommendations for good older games?

 

P.S. No RPGs please! :)

I've never tried any of the Civilization types of games, although a few of my coworkers do play them... What would be your highest recommendation in that genre for someone who has never played one?

stay away from them if you like having a social life.

You wanna play games that aren't RPGs or turn-based strategy games on Intel Extreme Graphics?? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH

 

LOL

 

Just teasing.

 

We played C&C Generals (RTS) on our 2.8 P4 HT Desktops with Intel Xsuck at work. We tried it on a laptop though and the slow HD speed made the game choke...

 

Q3 era games should work.

Yeah, that may end up being a quick upgrade after the RAM, I can get either a 60 or 80gb 7200 rpm HD for under $200... the only reason I am hesitant is the power consumption and the heat that would be generated by the faster drive.

 

I have to keep reminding myself that I didn't buy this laptop for gaming!

 

P.S. It shipped today... woohoo!
