Thread: Good laptop for playing old games (especially MTW)?

  1. #1

    Default Good laptop for playing old games (especially MTW)?

    I would like to invest in a cheap old laptop that can play the old classics like MTW. I plan on getting one with XP, which I guess is OK?

    The main issues I have had with MTW in the past is graphics card incompatability. So a bit of advice in that regard would be helpful.

    I was wondering in particular if anybody here had a laptop/OS combination that successfully runs this game...

    Your best bet is a laptop with Windows 8. Windows 10 still has issues with compatibility and can crash MTW but find a cheap, new laptop with Windows 8 that has decent specs and you're sorte dout.

    Which brand of MTW are you running? The Steam version seems to have alleviated the video card issues.
