23/11/2008 Ross :P: Hi, I just got one of these I'm waiting for it to arrive, which should be Tuesday… I know it’s a very good gaming laptop with dual core and high-end graphics card and upgradeable ram, But I’m worried about playing Red Alert 3 and Fallout 3 on it, I know the graphics card can handle them both, but both games need at least 2.6ghz CPU to run them, and this laptop comes with a 1.83ghz CPU. Will these games run on this laptop??

Matt: I think the 2.6GHz requirement would be for a single core CPU, such as the old AMD Athlons and Pentium 4's. You shouldnt have any difficulty at all with a Core 2 Duo processor as they are a lot more powerful despite lower clock speeds.
