    Any laptop would work, the engine is so old that my windows 8.1 laptop no bigger than a Ipad can run it.

    as long as hes got a dual core processor or higher, and he doesn't buy something HORRIBLY dated, he can play. anything modern will work, essentially.

    A cheap 4gb ram laptop with 64bit window.
    There will still be frame drop even if you use high end pc.

    -2 cores preferred, mabi runs on 1 core. quad cores will struggle with mabi
    -a cpu that can clock up to 3GHz, mabi can normally run at 3GHz but a compter with a base of 2.5GHz that can turbo up to 3 is also ok (probably not good for the cpu in the long run)
    -a laptop with its own card dedicated to graphics, not really important imo. an integrated graphics card will do fine too.
    -the laptop has to have a good cooling fan since mabis lack of optimization(?) will run the laptop very hot. if u get a computer and it runs too hot with mabi (like nearing 100C) try running it in powersaver mode.

    I got it running on my friend's mac but the controls are awful and there's no sound. Wish I could fix it.

    tbh, none of laptops are great for this game.
    Just make sure get a decent laptop cooler pad.

    Any modern laptop should run this game with no issue whatsoever. It is not at all intensive.

    also adding on to my prev. comment above, mabi cant run on macs (without a bootcamp?), and windows 7 seems to run mabi the best imo, windows 10 can causes glitches. vista is just bad bad bad dont ever get a pc with vista on it for like anything.

    with these specs in mind theres a lot of cheap laptops that can have all of that and be under 300$ (like a x220 thinkpad with a dual core processor, but the fan is not as good so youd have to be careful with cooling, they mostly use the sandy bridge chips now? the i5 ones are good for performance but get really hot in small laptops)
