I just used the link above to check my laptop and while it said that my laptop failed the minimum requirements I know that it ran in CB well enough for me. I did have to turn down much of the world graphics and did reduce the FX and character graphics as well but I ran into few problems running the game.

Just FYI here's the results of the test:


CPU: PASS
Minimum - Intel Core 2 Duo 1.8 GHz or AMD Athlon X2 3800+
Me - AMD Athlon Dual-Core QL-62

CPU SPEED: PASS
Minimum - 1.8 GHz
Me - 2.00 GHz

RAM: PASS
Minimum - 1 GB
Me - 1.7 GB

OS: PASS
Minimum - Windows XP SP2 / Windows Vista / Windows 7 (32 or 64-bit)
Me - Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium Edition, 32-bit (Build Service Pack 16001)

VIDEO CARD: FAIL (I suspect the fact that it's a laptop threw it off a bit)
Minimum - NVIDIA GeForce 7950 / ATI Radeon X1800 / Intel HD Graphics
Me - GeForce 8200M G

under the Video Card listing it breaks it down a bit, oddly enough I passed everything it listed

Video Ram
Required - 256 MB
I have - 880.0 MB

Hardware T&L
Required - Yes
I have - Yes

Pixel Shader version
Required - 3.0
I have - 4.0

Vertex Shader version
Required - 3.0
I have - 4.0

It of course also passed the requirements for the Sound Card and free disk space. I do find it odd that it failed the video card, but in it's breakdown of that catagory it passed everything.
