    COD:MF2 runs fine, playable on whatever settings the game defaulted to

    Snood 4.1 gets a little choppy on battery, no matter what I set the frame rate to.
    Heroes III works fine, but obviously the image is a little skewed with the widescreen resolution.

    Miniclip/xgen Motherload works very choppy. I tried the beta of Adobe 10.1 with hardware acceleration, but it was still choppy.

    dirt 2 with very low resolution (800x600, V sync, 16:9) and mostly low settings (reflections, objects, trees set to medium, shadows very low, cloth off) plays at a smooth 25 fps and looks beautiful on the 12.1 inch screen.

    highly recommended if you like rally racing and/or simulations,

    Mass Effect 1 is working smoothly on lowest settings and when plugged in on AC. only the game launch is kinda slow but gameplay was fine.

    it's a powerful tablet that can still out perform most of the newest tablet pc's

    however it is plagued by design flaws, so if you learn how to take apart a laptop and undervolt one, then I think it's one of the best

    For those of you that are waiting for Starcraft 2, the beta runs very smoothly on low settings.

    nope, I just installed it and it worked fine.

    try re-installing it. if that doesn't work then download an image of it and install using a virtual cd drive.

    if that doesn't work then re-install windows or upgrade to windows 7 if you already haven't (via a clean install of course)
