Apologies but I'm not very technically minded. My son is asking for this game but all he has is a laptop with Vista. Is it likely this game will play ok? Many thanks. Liz

It depends on his system specs, such as his processor, processor speed, amount of RAM, GFX Card and HDD space. You can find out all of this information by pressing Start and then right clicking on My Computer and pressing Properties.

Many thanks. Went into start, found computer but could only find system properties. The Processor is listed as 'Intel (R) Core (TM) 2 Duo CPU T5870 @ 2.00 GHz 2.00GHz. RAM is 2.00 GHz. Couldn't see anything called GFX card. Can see Hard Disk Drives, (is this the same as HDD space?), it says (2), Vista (C:) 36.4gb free of 74.9 gb and Data (E:) 68.1 gb free of 72.6 gb. I don't know if this is the info that will say whether or not the game will play. Any help will be much appreciated. Checked out PC world thinking maybe I could buy a computer for his birthday that would play games and was quoted £799. That's more than I'm prepared to pay for something to play games on - sadly from my son's point of view! Liz

Ok well what I usually use to check if I can run a game before buying it is going to this website;


Simply type in the name of the game which in this case is StarCraft 2 and it will appear in a drop down box, select it and then press the "Can You Run It?" button, the website will ask for access to your computer so it can assess your system, then after about 20seconds it will load up saying Pass or Fail, you can then scroll down and it will highlight each area, stating if your computer has passed the requirement. If the computer gets above a pass then his computer can run it :)

If you do wish to get your son a new computer if his current cannot handle it then have a look at the system specs of the computer you are thinking of buying and compare it to Starcraft 2's system requirements found in the following link;
