Thanks for the information. I'm beginning to understand the differences
between a laptop and a desktop as far as games are concerned - even if both
using Vista. Likewise, I have a lot of older games originally designed for
Windows 95/98/XP, when I had another computer, thinking I could get some of
them to run on my new Vista laptop. It did not quite turn out the way. From
what others have said, I now understand why.
However, there is actually a bright note to all this. I have a Playstation 3
as well, which also plays Playstation 1 & 2 games. I guess I better just
stick to that, instead of trying to rely on a laptop for games. Besides,
games would no-doubt be better than even on a desktop, since the Playstation
is designed for mostly just games. In addition, the Playstation 3 can play
any DVD, HD and even the newer technology of Blue-Ray. I can probably get
some of the older PC games that I still like in the Playstation format, and
maybe even at some pretty good prices.
I guess I'll just have to use the laptop for browsing the internet, writing
texts and email, and light applications.
