I'm going to try to buy two used laptops to combine into one mondo computer for windows/linux and POKER! I have to use laptop displays because I'm putting it into a piece of furniture and the only thing that will fit are 15.1in LCDs. I'm not too worried about the logistics of this project, I can pull it off. What I need to know:

Is anyone successfully running four tables plus pokertracker plus gametime++ on a PIII 1.0ghz machine? does it lag? if it does lag, how much RAM do you have? also, does it only seem to lag during pokertracker import?

thanks guys (and girls)... this will save me some money if I can buy these old machines.

My laptop is an IBM Thinkpad with a 1.2GHz P3-M. I've never noticed any problems, unless I'm running iTunes too (what a memory hog). Things still run fine when I'm unplugged and running at 800MHz, so I'd say you're probably fine. I have 256MB RAM.

Thanks mang. I suspected it would work fine but just wanted a little verification.
