Hello fellow simmers,
Next year I will be going away for my post-secondary education and want to bring one computer game with me (guess which one). :-P
Now I know FS9 is perfectly capable of being run on a laptop but I have a slew of add-ons that I use and want to know how well I can run the game with the add-ons based on specs I provide (for all you computer geniuses out there). I will provide my laptop's specs and the add-ons I use.
AMD Athlon X2 Dual-Core Processor for Notebook PC QL-60 (1.9GHz, 1MB L2 cache).
250GB (5400RPm) hard-Drive
3072MB DDR2 SDRAM (2 DIMM)
Lightscribe Super Multi 8X DVD+-RW Doble Layer Support
5-1 Digital Media Reader
ATI Radeon HD 3200 Graphics with Shared Graphics Memory
Windows vista Home Premium (32-BIT)

With those addons, I wouldn't even attempt it. You'd need at least 4GB of RAM and a 2.4GHz or higher processor, and you have a lot of memory intensive addons. I would only try the game, I definitely wouldn't try installing the addons.
