    I read that nvidia ion was incorporated with this netbook and saw in an Asus n10 handaon the guy was playing COD4 on it. Do you think That the Lenovo ideapad s12 will be able to handle Civ 4

    It might, but only barely. You might run in to problems with the integrated graphics, and possibly with the processor as well. It definitely won't run as fast as it could and you will have to run with low graphics settings if it runs.

    Moderator Action: Moved to the Computer Talk forum. Technically, this is about Civ4, but you'll get better answers here.

    It should be able to play Civ4 fine. Civ 4 is not a very graphically intense game.

    The one thing to worry about is the video card. Since it's integrated, it has to use the system RAM, so you might wind up low.

    None of the above
    but it is CPU intense and RAM intense.
