A buddy of mine just purchased a new Acer laptop... I know, I wasn't all that impressed either. Anyway, it's not anything fancy, just something for the average user I'd say. He hadn't initially intended to use it for gaming, but then he started getting into Black Ops. So he bought it for his computer, and it runs... well, it runs better than I thought it would. His specs are as follows: I'm fairly certain the "lag" is due to the integrated graphics, but at the same time, it's got me kind of confused. Regardless of what settings, low or high, it seems to be more or less the same. I'd say it's just as playable in high as it is in low. It's very quick when in buildings, but when out in the open, it starts to drop frames, again, not to the point of absurdity, but enough for you to notice, but not enough to really make you want to quit playing. He keeps using it as an excuse for why he sucks. Anyways, I was wondering if more RAM would help the situation at all? As I recall, CoD requires 2GB of RAM at the minimum. Is 3GB just not making the cut because of it being shared with the graphics + all the necessary Windows services running? Thanks in advance, -Chris.
