Hi, and thanks in advance for any advice. My computer was lost in an accident last week and Im thinking of getting a Compaq V5094. I have to get a laptop because of work commitments, and was wondering if this would be okay for p.f merged. I wouldn't know where to start with building my own and need something a.s.a.p so any help is much appreciated. Thanks.

Fujitsu-Siemens Amilo D 1845 notebook here.... needed a RAM expansion (currently running 768 MB) but it now runs PF rather well, but don't expect to be able to run perfect graphics, that isn't realitic with a 128 MB video adapter and less than a gig of RAM.
There are more powerful notebooks around for gaming but they will quite possibly cost more than this one cost me.

Hope this helps

Depends upon how much money you want to spend. Look here:

The specs for that laptop are almost exactly the same as mine and I haven't even installed PFm on it yet. I wouldn't really attempt to run it and fly (online or off) but want to install it to be able to work on maps remotely (and make it look like I'm really working...http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif ).

I'll install it tonight and let you know. btw- I've played UT2k4 online through my wireless router with settings in the middle with no problems whatsoever.

Mine is a Dell Inspiron 6000

Pentium m 2.0ghz
1024 RAM
60gb HDD (5400 rpm)
DVD r/rw burner
15.4" widescreen
128 mb X300 dedicated graphics

Thanks everyone for the help, and cheers thunderbolt - I'll be interested to hear how it works out on your dell. If its no bother, could you let me know what the frame rates are like and maybe a screen shot over water? Sorry to be a fuss. I just can't wait to get back into it! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif
