Does anyone know if this laptop click here would be suitable for playing the game Counter Strike condition Zero online.

Any other recommedations would be appreciated too.

I think the specs on that laptop aren't enough for condition zero, and you won't get very good framerates. should look for something with better memory or graphics?

I would say it would play the game slowly on the games lowest setting,
Laptops aint much cop for playing games like CS unless you buy a really expencive one,

Might be an idea to go for a desktop,
it will be alot cheaper than getting a laptop of similar specs.

my son is insisting on buying a laptop to play it on, despite him having access to the family desktop.

I notice that someone on this site has purchased this one click here and when I emailed him, he seemed happy enough with it. It was out of stock, which is why my son was looking for other options.

You really want something with dedicated graphics , not the integrated onboard Intel stuff , games of almost any sort would run like a sloth in treacle ! Minimum 512mb of memory , 1.5gig processor ( pentium M ) minimum 64mb dedicated graphics ( meaning a seperate card ) and a decent 15" screen , he might have to save up a bit more ....

I would get your son a desktop as you will need a minimum of £1000 before you get anything of any use for this game. Plus for a child a laptop can be a good way of hiding things from a parent. Not something you want. I would get a PC as for 400-500 you will get something that will do a fine job.

Discount my comments if this child is not of the age required for monitoring.

I think that I managed to pursuade him to stick with a desktop but like all teenagers, he wouldn't have listened to me alone.
