Is anyone running BF2 on a laptop?  I need a new laptop, and want to make sure I get one that will run the game.  Was wonder who is currently using a laptop, and what make and model it is.

Hey man,

I'm using a laptop and BF2 runs well on it (all settings medium which is very reasonable). My laptop model is an Acer Aspire 1682WLMi. It has a built-in graphics card from the factory (ATI Mobility Radeon 9700). Having a graphics card is essential if you're gonna run BF2 on your PC, I also suggest that you upgrade it to at least 2GB RAM. The process is simple, just insert a couple of 1GB chips into the bottom of the PC. Use two 1GB chips and not one 2GB chip because if one of the chips fail mid-life you will still have 1GB of RAM. Use two 2GB chips if you can. I haven't got a clue on other makes, I'm happy with my Acer.

Hope this info is useful.

Same, and I have a Dell, midrange without too many bells and whistles. I keep most settings down except draw distance and geometry, but it plays well and without lag. This is great considering my old computer took 5 minutes to load a BF1942 game.
I loaded BF2 on my HP - Pavilion Laptop with AMD Turion X2 Dual-Core Mobile Processor RM-70 laptop ($675 at Best Buy 2 months ago) with an ATI Radeon HD3200 Mobility integrated graphics card, and 3 gig's of RAM.  Runs pretty well, but I think some of the occasional choppiness I experience comes from my Vista 64-bit OS.  On the up-side, it loads a game in less than a third of the time that it takes my older desktop which has a NVIDIA 7600 graphics card, 2 gigs, and XP.  Also, don't use a wireless connection if you can help it - also negatively impacts gameplay.

My advice:  Don't be cheap, get as powerful a laptop as you can afford, 'cause the day will come when you want to run the new BF game whenever it comes out, and you won't want to be stuck with a system that can't be upgraded or at the least can't run the game without an upgrade.

Karma to anyone who gets that joke.
When I was buying my laptop a year and half ago, I had just one main requirement for that hardware. And it was: possibility to run and play comfortably Battlefield 2. The only game I play. I choose Asus G1S. And must say, it works fine. Im also a Java Developer and web developer. So Photoshop and many IDEs works fine as well.
I should extend it's RAM to 3 gigs. But never could find a time for that.
not always PWD, but usually.
