Re: Star Trek Online Discussion Thread (now free to play!)

It's an Acer Aspire E1. I've never needed a high end machine, because I mostly use it for writing and day-to-day productivity, but my old HP was really suffering. Even for just web surfing. This new one is not close to a dedicated gaming machine, but I really won't use it for gaming outside of STO.

I've just been surprised by how smoothly STO runs on it. I've typically avoided large ground maps like New Romulus and the Voth battlezone, because my frame rate just died on them before. Playing them was often really painful, even with the graphics settings down low. New Romulus is a pleasure now! The other big thing I've noticed as far as playability is that when I click on something, it's more responsive. I often had to double-click things in game to use them, when they were single-click, because for some reason the first one wouldn't register. Much better now.

It's a miracle I played the game for more than a few hours!
