Hey, I have a HP Pavilion Slimline s3200
http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01...

and a Toshiba Satellite a200-JA2

I was wondering if I could run SC2 on any of these, thanks.

I don't know for sure, but I'm guessing they probably won't because when i play sc 2 my gtx260 is being worked pretty hard. Those computers you listed just have onboard video so I think you may need a new video card.

Hey I just tested starcraft 2 right now on low setting. I still don't know if you can play it, but it only used my GTX about 26% on all low setting 1920x1080. It looks bad though. I guess the only way is to try the demo when it comes out.

Demos have already been out for a while and SC2 is coming out very soon, so if you mean wait for SC3, wait another 10-15 years,

Thanks for the help tuesday. Do you think I should still buy Starcraft 2 when it comes it? I don't care for graphics that much, I just want to play it without lag.

Demo can only be gotten torrented or blizzard randomly gives it out 2 people who signed up for it.

I don't know if you should buy it. Maybe blizzard will release a demo of the game when they release it. I don't want to tell you to buy it because I don't know if it'll run. I do know that the game in low quality mode looks really bland. The color is all mixed together, but it's still 3d and looks better than starcraft 1.

tuesday if you downloaded your demo off a torrent would you mind sending the link of the torrent to me?

If the demo is not publicly available, then asking if it can be obtained from torrents or any other means other than officially from the publisher is not allowed here.
