I was just wondering if anyone who played 1.0 on a laptop could give me their specs (RAM, CPU, GPU etc) and relative gameplay experience (Graphical Settings, FPS, slowdowns).
My girlfriend is in dire need of a new gaming rig if we have hopes of playing FFXIV together. Her decent laptop that she played FFXI and the FFXIV beta on had a major hardware catastrophe a year after she got it. Then the laptop a friend from FFXI sent her got stolen when her apartment got broken into (along with her TV, PS3, games and the earrings I bought her for her birthday >.>). She is currently using my 5-6 year old work laptop which scored under 250 in the 1.0 benchmark.
I was planning on building her a desktop similar to mine, but I don't believe she would have the room in her current living quarters. I've been looking at prebuilt laptops and just as I assumed they are grossly overpriced compared to the hardware contained within. Even on Newegg I've noticed how their "gaming" laptops seem to use very underpowered GPUs and sticks of 4gb and 2gb memory in a dual channel system <.<. I guess I may look into building a laptop, but it sounds like it would be more hassle than it's worth.
Thanks for any insight provided on this issue in advance.
