Ultrabooks and gaming on the move

Playing games on an ultrabook

With the everyday technology advance and the (r)evolution of ultrabooks people become more and more obsessed with bringing their casual home activities on the move. First it was reading the e-mail on a laptop, then there came editing of documents and using multimedia on the move. As one can expect, the gaming activities followed down the path of mobile experience, and soon most people used their mobile gadgets mostly for entertainment, and less for work.

No surprise some of us would like to use their ultrabook for a specific online activity – online casino games. No matter how you think of it, playing online while on the move is not a problem with the performance of the contemporary mini laptops or as most people call them – ultrabooks.

The hardware requirements for playing online – let’s say for example – play roulette online, are not so high as one might suppose. In fact, every online casino software provider has a list of the minimum system requirements needed to use their casino software.

These requirements are published on the site of the provider, and nevertheless they are not specific for a netbook, you can be sure even average netbook would cover them. Bellow is an example of such requirements, although they might vary for different providers to some extent.

  • PC-compatible computer
  • Windows 98 or higher
  • Pentium II 350 MHz or higher (your netbook’s Atom CPU is much better in any case)
  • 64 MB RAM (wow, is it specs for my smartphone, or laptop?!?)
  • 8 MB video card with 32-bit color (800×600 or higher)
  • DirectX 7 or higher
  • Macromedia Flash 7 or higher
  • 35 MB hard drive space
  • Sound Blaster AWE 32-bit sound card or better

As you clearly see, your netbook is way above the specification, so good luck with your next online gaming experience.
