How well would you think Sim City 4 would run on a tablet like this?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834215081

1Ghz dual core CPU, Radeon 6250 graphics, 2GB RAM, Home premium 32-bit.

Im not going to buy a tablet, but just an idea I had to have Simcity 4 on the go :D

How well you think SC4 would play on those specs? Im thinking it would run great, except on mid-big cities, with medium settings.

Really depends on some things that can only be tested by running the program, like overheating the CPU.

I can imagine it being very hard to control the tools and such. But I think the real obsticle would be memory and speed. You also couldn't download any mods though too.

A tablet is really designed for text and media applications, not simulations that kill the processor. They are all I/O and very little processing.

Well I would think there are two obsticles to overcome.

1. The processing power, which would probably kill the thing.

2. The touch IS really hard to control. I've run SimCity 4 on a computer like this at one point and using touch was terrible. :dead:

Also on another note, good to see you back Legosim. Haven't seen you around here in a while. ;)

This is too weak for SC4. Maybe this is a tablet more suitable for SC4 (It have the nearest specificatiosn of my netbook, that runs very well the game): https://www.meebox.com.mx/detalle.php?token=eccbc87e4b5ce2fe28308fd9f2a7baf3
