    so while i was in florida my nephew dropped my lifeline to toontown. i am looking to replace my now deceased laptop. i know speed is good, and hard drive space and graphics, but though i use them constantly i wouldn't consider myself a very brilliant technical person. can someone review this and tell me if i would be happy playing tt on it? thanks in advance for your help.

    You should be fine playing TT on that, just as long as Windows 7 hasn't brought any compatibility problems with it. I haven't heard that it has like it did with some versions of Vista when it came out.

    If you could upgrade anything I'd max out the RAM, not sure what the max is for this model. 4GB should be decent though. I used to play TT on my old Compaq notebook and that ran fine. TT really only requires 256MB to play, so you should be blazing as far as that is concerned!

    My new laptop has 8Gb in it and so far playing wizards has been fine. The old one had 6gb and was fine also. I know the graphics card is important but can't remember which I have.

    It should be fine. Windows 7 home premuim is good. There no problem with windows 7 working with toontown is great you might have to adjust window resolution on laptop I dont know for sure. I had to do that on my desktop.
