Netbooks weren't designed for gaming but that doesn't mean it's impossible. British tech site Mobile Computer got their hands on a ASUS N10 netbook, which features a GeForce 9300M GS, and says the system is quite capable of running Call of Duty 4 at the display's native 1024 x 600 resolution.
When flipped into high-performance graphics mode, the N10 runs surprisingly well. The 1.6GHz N270 processor is hardly a powerhouse, but the GeForce 9300M chipset is still capable of running Call of Duty 4 at the screen’s native 1024 x 600 resolution. We had to drop anti-aliasing down to 2x to keep the frame-rate up, but the game runs very smoothly otherwise. The video shows this in much more detail, but you’ll see that the N10 really is the first netbook that’s suitable for serious gaming.
