    Hi,
    I am currently considering a leap from the console sim world to PC sim. I am a huge fan of Race Pro and as there are no other all out simulation games available for xbox I would like to progress into the PC simulation games as there are a better selection.
    I have a Dell Inspiron 1545 with Windows Vista. It has a pentium Dual-core CPU and 32bit operating system (Non of which means much to me), I was wondering If Race On or Race 07 will run well nough or at all on this laptop?

    If so, as I understand I will be able to connect my Microsoft Wireless Racing Wheel to the laptop and go racing hopefully.

    If anyone could get back to me and let me know if these games will work on my laptop could you please let me know?

    Thanks,

    Jimi

    Not sure exactly what you need, got a few bits here:
    BIOS: Phoenix ROM BIOS Plus version 1.10 A07
    Processor: Pentium Dual Core CPU T400@ 2.00GHz ~ 2.0GHz
    Memory: 3034MB RAM
     
  4. You should post your graphic card too....

    Just given the Demo a test run. Appears to run ok, very slight glitch/jerky gameplay when running in a race with other cars. Other than that it is definately driveable just with lower quality graphics obviously. Am i right in thinking the microsoft wireless wheel can be linked to t he laptop via an xbox wireless reciever? Will try that, run it on the demo when i go home back to my wheel and then hopefully buy the game an go racing.

    Thanks for all the help, hope to be online racing soon once the wheel is sorted
