Hello folks,

I am thinking about going for a 1201N or 1215N for xmas and I was wondering if anyone has managed to do any gaming on either of these two beasts. ION and ION2 cards are supposed to be super cool and fast, and coupled with the dual core atoms should be decent for basic mmo gaming!

I read somewhere that World of Warcraft and EvE can run pretty good (under Windows 7) but I can not find the links.

Has anyone got any personal experience?

Many thanks!

I played HL2 with high details on native. My girlfriend played sims 3, on native but low settings. GTA 3 full details.
I have to try hot pursuit, i think it will be playable.

Gaming does not work so well on any asus netbook because the graphics card is not the greatest in it. World of Warcraft works on lowest settings, lowest rez, and it still lags up if you're in raids or in a dungeon that has a lot going on.

You were able to play HL2 on this? What were the other settings on; couldn't have been very high?
