512 MB RAM
1.50 GHz
Intel Inside Centrino

I've turned the resolution as low as possible in the game settings. I think it's my graphics card that's not made for this game.....Also the "TFT-Display" probably slows the picture movement down a little too....


512 MB Ram is decent....Its a laptop so its gonna be slower as you can see by the 1.50 ghz....

As for the centrino its not really a gaming processor.

I would set your graphics to medium...make sure that the live scoreboared is not on! ... This is an FPS killer..when does the game get slow??

Centrino is nothing more than a fancy name for the new laptop Pentiums. They're just as good as P4s. ;-)

Quite a few laptops have the video controllers soldered onto the mainboard, so you are most likely out of luck if that is your problem.

Theoretically you can add a dedicated video card and run it through it the integrated unit but usually there is no room to add it.
