    Not offhand, but it worked on my laptop, Pentium IV and it ran very well. I've got Medieval Total War II on it now without problems at a high graphics setting.

      RTW is not a resource hog, it will run well on many platforms. I ran it just fine on a Pentium IV 2.0 GHz with 256MB RAM, an old machine which is by no means state of the art.

          Offhand, I doubt you'd have problems if your laptop is recent, RTW is a good game but it is about 4 years old know iirc.
          And it's over the mountain and over the Main,
          Through Gibralter, to France and Spain.

            My laptop is an XP2000, and has 148MB RAM. Will this hinder it's ability in any way?

              Looks like you've only got about half the required amount. This would be a pretty old laptop, yes? Might have some difficulty, particularly with the real-time battles.

                  With that little amount of RAM, I'm surprised you can run much of anything at all! The laptop I'm using now is circa 2003, and came standard with 256 megs.

                  (And even with that, it is waaaaaay too slow for my liking.)

                  I've played RTW on my desktop computer; bought new in 2004, 512 megs of ram and a pretty decent AMD processor. During the thick of some battles, it stuttered a bit. I would guess that you won't have much luck with it on your system.

                    It came out roughly four years ago, so provided your machine can run some programs somewhat well you should have no problem. I ran it okay on a machine that was a P4 with a 64mb graphics card and a gig of RAM - I just had to keep graphics low, and be wary of battles with massive amounts of soldiers.

                      He has about 1/7 the amount or RAM that you do. Methinks it wouldn't do at all.

                        No, not at all.

                        I don't really like laptops. Not powerful enough to play these games, unless you want to pay a lot of cash.

                          Well, I bought it, tried it on the laptop. Most of the buttons couldn't be seen, and stuttered on everything.

                          So, tried it on my family's PC, and working just fine. Having some troubles with the Britons and Macedonians though!
