Hi
Yes I am that unknowledgeable about computers.
Going skiing in January and thinking of taking laptop for sons to mess about with early evenings before we eat etc however there will be no internet connection at the hotel.
Are there PC games that could run off a laptop and if there is could anybody recommend any for boys aged 13.
Thanks.

Dont know a lot to be honest as its my partners. its a sony vaio about 2 years old if that is any indication and runs vista. no idea of memory size or anything like that.

World of Goo, except your hubby will probably hijack it for himself!

I'm running Borderlands at the moment on mostly High settings no probs.

Also got Gears of war, the Witcher, Fallout 3, Red facion Guerilla........

Thn again dunno what laptop you got?? But these are good games (if you let your son play em that is)

Thanks guys repped you all. world of goo sounds interesting will have to take a look. He has one or two of the age of empires when he had his old PS2 and liked those and he also liked the roller coaster stuff so lots of ideas thanks.

I've just finished Plants vs Zombies and Airport Mania, both very fun and addictive. Neither are particular graphics demanding.

Oh yeah, you can also tinker with the settings to find the optimal perfomance for the games to run properly too.

And I've heard Bioshock is also able to run on low spec machines
