Run the benchmark located on the lodestone website or try going to www.canirunit.com and see if it meets your systems specifications. I wouldn't recommend waiting for the ps3 cause it may take just a lil while...

Thanks, looks like I fall about half way between minimum and recommended. I miss playing FFXI and have been holding out for PS3 version, but its driving me nuts lol

how did you score that low with those specs?

if you haven't already, you might want to go to power options and set it to high performance. laptops normally have it set so that the battery life lasts longer, even when it's plugged in.

I'm running the game on a 3 year old notebook that has a Core 2 Duo 3.06ghz, 4GB ram, 9800m GTX with 1gb of video ram, & Vista 64. Game runs fine even at full screen 1680x1050 at normal settings (no Anti-aliasing or Anistropic filtering though), just takes a little longer to load even with a 7200rpm hardrive in my notebook. So if my 3yr old system can run it, your more modern notebook should be just fine.

Only major downside is the notebook sounds like a jet engine with all the 3 fans running at full speed when the game is running and the heat coming out the back.

I don't know why you scored that low but I scored a 2100 on the benchmark before they changed the recommended system specs and I run it just fine. i would just pick it for your laptop if I were you. Take advantage of the FTP :)
