How Well Does the Tablet PC Handle Other Computer Games?

All the preceding games are free. They either come with your Tablet PC, or you can download them at no charge. In addition to the free games mentioned here, your Tablet PC can also play most games on the market made for later generations of Windows. Because your Tablet PC is designed for lightness and battery conservation, however, it does not have the speed that many high-end desktop and laptop systems have. For this reason, it is important to read the system requirements of games before purchasing them—especially because opened software is not usually returnable.

The only games you should have problems with are ones that require significant graphics processing (first-person shooters and incredibly detailed strategy games) or extremely fast processors. Know what your processor speed is (in MHz or GHz) and compare that to the system requirements on software packages to be sure your system is compatible. Some games will also require significant RAM and hard drive capacity, so be sure you know what you have before buying and loading these games.
