Will Pcsx2 run good on this laptop?
#1
Recently, I have felt like playing the Kingdom Hearts: Final Mix games again. However, I don't want to spend my money on another Ps2 (I sold mine), and the disks/tools to mod it to play my imports.

I'm getting a new laptop soon, so I figured I would just use Pcsx2 to play it. There are two laptops I'm deciding between. I'll give you the specs, and I want to know if either one of them can use Pcsx2 and play KH1 and KH2 Final Mix versions near pefectly. (As in, full speed, etc.)

1. Macbook Pro, the cheapest 15" one. I will use it to run Windows Vista on boot camp (Or XP...whichever runs Pcsx2 better)

Specs:

Processor - 2.53GHz Intel Core 2 Duo
L2 cache - 3MB shared
System bus - 1066MHz
Memory - 4GB (two 2GB SO-DIMMs) of 1066MHz DDR3 SDRAM
Hard drive4 - 250GB Serial ATA; 5400 rpm
Graphics - NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics processor with 256MB of DDR3 SDRAM shared with main memory3

2. Sony Vaio VGN

Specs:

2.26 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo P8400 processor
# 250 GB hard drive
# 4 GB RAM (maximum)
# Intel GMA 4500MHD graphics
# Windows Vista Home Premium (SP1)

Let me know if there's any other information you need to know... Thanks! Tongue

The Macbook is fair? How fair? Approximately what speed/how well will it play KH1:FM and KH2:FM+?

Also, what needs to improved on it? What is making it "fair" and not "good"?

Thanks Smile

1GB RAM (2GB if using Windows Vista)

Remarks:that mac CPU is not reached it's peak recommended requirement
Remarks 2:that game KH2 w/ FM shall work fine w/ speed hacks of 1.5 EE,INTC and Cycle stealing at(Slight)

So, the graphics card and RAM/Memory is good enough on the Mac? The CPU just needs to be higher like the one you highlighted in orange? Did I understand that right? :/ (Sorry, I'm not good at this stuff)

Also, what you said about speed hacks, I have a few questions:

1. You said it will work fine? So it will play at full speed with speedhacks "without" needing a higher CPU?
2. If yes to the above question, will there be any errors, glitchyness, frame-skipping, etc? Or will it play near perfectly?
3. What's 1.5 EE, INTC, and Cycle Stealing at (Slight)?

Again, sorry, I'm not good at this stuff.

*yes it will work fine but some slowdown in some areas mostly in gummy ship
*DX10 is less glitchy
*here is the example of my speed hacks(Config-->Speed hacks) see attachment
