    Could a ultrabook play rift?


    So I would like to start off by saying I do not PC game but I don't always have access to my TV so I will play a PC to have a little fun and pass the time. I am looking at a Lenovo Yoga (non RT) or a Windows Surface Pro and I was just wondering if Rift would play okay on some low settings? Here are the requirements for Rift, thanks everybody.

    Operating system: Windows XP SP2, Vista, 7, or 8
    Processor: Dual core 2.0 GHz or better
    Memory: 2 GB
    Hard disk space: 15.0 GB available
    Video: Nvidia GeForce FX 5900, ATI/AMD Radeon X300, Intel GMA X4500, or better
    Sound: DirectX® 8.1 compliant card
    DirectX®: 9.0c or better

    yeah, those machines will play rift fine. and I doubt you'll need to run it at low settings unless your Internet connection is really slow.

    Now I have a 20 MB connection so I should be fine. Thanks I really appreciate it cause it looks like a decent game to pass the time I was just curious cause the specs said 2 Ghz dual core and most of the ultra books I have been looking at are 1.8 Ghz but I know that there are difference in the performance of all Intel dual core cpu depending on which one I get. Thanks again.
