    Let's say I wanted to kill some time and play some old school Starcraft. Could a x61 tablet handle it?

    (I know, n00b question.)

    I have no clue, but I'm pretty sure it could handle starcraft.... that game IS pretty damn old.

    I play WC3, a newer game, on the T2010, a machine with a slower processor. 20 fps, perfectly playable.

    Yes you can play Starcraft without a problem, you can even use the pen instead of the mouse if you stretch the starcraft "window" to the whole screen.

    Yep, old-school games run on anything with an integrated graphics processor just fine - I've gotten the original Halo PC to run on a guy's MacBook, and the graphics are not too bad on that. The Source engine will run albeit a little slowly. Older MMO's run good, like EVE.

    Just because it's got some pretty graphics doesn't mean that it's a crappy gaming machine - I plan on loading up my next tablet with Halo, EVE, Fallout 1 + 2, original Doom + Quake games, maybe Defcon.

    Glad to hear it can handle it, I was hoping on installing WC3 on my tablet to play some tower wars when I'm not busy!

    I used to run starcraft on an old pentium II laptop a few years back. If it can do that, anything can.
