I know I'm late to the craze, but I would like to know if my computer would run The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Any setting is fine, but here are the specifications. Note that this is a laptop.

AMD E-300 1.3 GHz performance rated at 1.95 GHz (that seems to be the fussy part when I use "Can you run it?", sometimes that shows, other times it doesn't. Probably means it won't work, but still. :L)

AMD Radeon HD 6310 Graphics

4 GB of RAM (DDR3 if that matters)

Thanks in advance!

That CPU would definetly hold you back from playing it. My 2.3 ghz quad core can run skyrim only on all low settings, and there are still hiccups here and there, so I seriously doubt that processor will be able to handle it.

You might be able to play it at absolute minimum settings, 800x600 resolution, everything low. The E-300 APU is really not meant for any real gaming. It's a low power integrated graphics solution for low end laptops and netbooks. It can handle things like HD video playback, and maybe some really old games, but it will probably choke on Skyrim or any other modern title.

Thanks everyone. Might as well not risk it trying it with this PC.
