Hi all I'm new here and just to make sure we're all on the same level I'd like to inform you that (yes its a very low level). I'm just wondering how many Sentia owners have tried out Half Life 2 on it, cause I just bought a custom laptop that's outfitted very similar to a Sentia and I've been running Half Life 2 on it rather well at 800x600 except for the fact that the game shuts itself down every once in a while. I know what your saying... if its shutting down it isn't running very well at all, but seriously its running very smoothly. My laptop has a 1.5ghz dothan pentium m, 768 mb ram, and yes the 64mb shared intel extreme graphics 2. So I'm just wondering if any of you have tried it so far and how succesful its been, because our systems meet the minimum requirements according to the box and manufacterer who states hl 2 supports integrated graphics, except that the T&L will have to be done on the processor, and no the pentium m is not the best processor for carrying this out. The graphics card requirements according to valve are 32 mb dedicated, which in the bios I can set my graphics card to 8, 16, and 32 dedicated vram. I was wondering how high you Sentia owners can set your graphics cards to in the bios, I was chattin with the alienware live tech support on their website and he tells me that the sentia can be set all the way up to 64mb in the bios, which I didn't think was possible with 64mb shared, but thats what alienware tells me, but I'd like an actual owner of a sentias feedback on if this is true or not.
