Starcraft 2 (Beta) running on a HP Mini netbook

Starcraft 2 quick review on a low end system:

HP mini, netbook specs:
1.6 Ghz Atom processor
1 GB Ram
Intel 945 Express graphic adapter
10 inches 1024×576 resolution screen

Click Here to see a full report with the details of the system.

This is way under the minimum requirements, but still launches the game.

The game runs on a 640×480 resolution and with all settings down to minimum.
The average FPS seems to be around 3 and 5. But in the event of having multiple units on screen (like a battle) it looks like FPS could drop down to 1 FPS or less.
Not playable.
Attempting to run the game on this kind of hardware is NOT recommended. The gaming experience cannot be enjoyed.

  1. Hi,

    do you think an HP mini 110 with 2 GB Ram would run the game (Starcraft 2)
    more fluent? Or is the processor simply to slow?
