    Any computer savvy people out there?

    Hi, I am looking at buying a virtual reality home cycle trainer bike24.net/1.p…ed5
    and need a computer with the following minimum specs to run it:

    Hardware
    CPU: Pentium 4 or higher
    Memory: 1024MB
    Disc space: 850MB
    Videocard: DirectX9.0b compatible with 128MB dedicated videomemory. Onboard (integrated) -graphics might not work. (GeForce FX or equivalent, not shared)
    Sound card: DirectSound compatible
    Various: 1 free USB port
    DVD drive: to play the Real Life Videos
    OS: Windows 2000, XP

    I was looking at the Acer aspire revo play.com/PC/…tml and was thinking of hooking it up to my sony 40" LCD and using it as a monitor.

    The question I have is do you think the Revo could run the above hardware/software.

    The revo specs are:

    # Processor: Intel Atom 230 1.6GHz
    # Memory: 2GB
    # HD Capacity: 160GB
    Dedicated graphics: 512 MB
    # Display: None
    # Graphics Card: NVIDIA ION
    # Optical Drive: None
    # Operating System: Vista Home Premium
    # Networking: Wireless 802.11b/g, Ethernet LAN 10/100

    Thanks for any help you can give.

    Should be OK but your issue lies in the OS - Is says recommended 2000/XP, although you could run in compatibility mode but there is still the chance it might not work. Perhaps set up a virtual machine and install XP onto it to run it? It's worth a try on Vista first though.

    Also if you have an external USB DVD drive, that might help too

    Otherwise, just from the specs it should be fine.
