  1. Amethyst, Thank you so, so much for coming back to me on this. I am extremely grateful for your input and opinion. I will hold off for a bit and hopefully, like you said, someone with more experience with this graphics card will voice an opinion too. Again, many thanks. Marisol x
  2. Is this a better option?? I guess I'm asking, will this run SL? I thought I was OK with computers but laptops have me confused :matte-motes-stress: 
  3. Hi Amethyst, Thank you for responding, I was concerned that this would be the case. I hope you don't mind me asking, but could you (or anyone) please recommend any specific laptops to look at for playing SL on standard settings? Or could you maybe suggest what I'd need to amend my budget to in order to be able to play SL? I miss it a lot.. and maybe it's time to call on my flexible friends, Mr Visa and Mr MasterCard.. Again, thank you for replying. Marisol x
  4. Hi all, I am needing to buy a laptop as I am going to be away from home for nine months, and also, my PC at home is ten+ years old anyway (and has been running SL - barely) and is pretty much dead. I would love to have some recommendations for budget laptops (max £500-600 English pounds) that will run SL. It doesn't have to run on max / ultra settings, I'm not expecting miracles from a budget machine. But I'm looking at a Dell right now and as I've never owned a laptop before, I am beyond confused, specifically regarding built in graphics cards. I'm running out of time and due to my budget, have little to no options. Just to to give you an idea of how badly my PC ran SL, it is still on Win XP home 32bit, 1GB RAM, 75GB HD, ATI Radeon graphics card, I'm not at home right now to give the exact model of the graphics card but it was/is so bad that I could only ever use a very old version of SL Viewer that I had to specifically download so it would run with XP. I was disconnected from SL every five mins using this desktop, and the lag when I was connected was ridiculous on even the lowest of settings. So any improvement in that would be a happy relief. And the new budget laptop is really just a stop gap until I'm back at home to purchase a new desktop. Ive been looking at a Dell Inspiron 15 3000, which I understand is an old model, but I'd read an older post on here which stated that on board graphics card will run SL better than anticipated. I am going to try to add a photo of the specs as I can't remember them all. Thank you you so much in advance for any help, advice, etc.. Marisol x
