    I honestly don't know anything about what is required to play the game. I'm getting a notebook soon, I'm not getting it just for GH, but I'd like to be able to play it.

    I don't know if I have the right information to be able to tell, but here's some I managed to find.

    First one:

    * MEMORY - 2048MB DDR2 (2 Dimms)
    * HARD DRIVE - 250GB 5400RPM
    * OPTICAL DRIVE - LightScribe Super Multi 8X DVD±RW with Double Layer Support
    * COLOUR DISPLAY - 15.4\" WXGA High Definition BrightView Widescreen Display
    * VIDEO - NVIDIA GeForce 8400M GS (NB8M G84M GS) up to 895MB TurboCache total graphics memory with 128MB dedicated for more than or equal to 2048MB system memory
    * TV-OUT PORT HDMI, S-Video Output



    Second One:

    Processor type
    Intel® Centrino® Duo processor technology
    • Intel® Core™2 Duo processor T7700
    • 2.40 GHz , 4 MB L2 Cache, 800MHz FSB

    Standard memory
    3072 MB

    Memory type
    DDR2

    Memory layout
    (1 x 1024 MB + 1 x 2048 MB)

    Maximum memory
    Supports up to 4GB DDR2 memory (Dual Channel Memory Support; For 4 GB memory configuration, up to 1 GB may not be available with 32-bit operating systems due to system resource requirements)


    Internal hard disk drive
    250 GB

    Hard disk controller
    SATA Hard Disk Drive

    Hard disk drive speed
    5400 rpm

    Display size
    15.4” WXGA High Definition BrightView Widescreen

    Display resolution

    Video adapter
    NVIDIA® GeForce™ 8400M GS

    Video RAM
    up to 1023MB TurboCache total graphics memory with 256MB dedicated for more than or equal to 2048MB system memory


    Would these two notebooks be able to play the game? Which one would peform better, and if it does peform better, would it be a big noticable improvement?

    It plays on my 1st generation MacBook Pro.

    Core Duo 2.16Ghz

    Thereby not said it runs great but it scrapes by :)

    I'm sorry, but I refuse to give you advice on this matter unless these laptops of which you speak are Macs. :D

    Welcome to MacRumors, please stay a while, but... :eek:
