It's really not that bad, to be honest. What are your computers specs?

it really depends on what you've got in your computer and what you set the settings to

It is I would say I a medium-to-high end graphics Game. Here's some specs of my comp (Specifications / Components of your computer, hard drive, graphics card, sound card, processor, mother board etc etc,, )

If you have a Dual Core processor, Windows XP, an NVIDIA GeForce 9500GT Graphics card
( like me, :/ ) FOR EXAMPLE,

Then you will get away with it on medium settings..Turn Anisotropic filtering and Anti Aliasing right Down as these are designed to smooth off corners and such and basically just chuck a hell of a load more polygons into there, (you'll see the names in the settings) you are better keeping it low for those settings, the less polygons it has to render, the higher your fps will be (Frames Per Second = not as laggy).

Set the settings to medium, some can be on low if you so desire, remember, the less demand on the graphics, the faster your game will run.....( You can toggle these settings once in game to find your ideal compromise..)

If you are considering buying this game, I might suggest you hang on for the bundle pack that is due out soon..mid-Late Summer, guys?...This has the DLC's included. Alternatively, buy the Game now, and wait for the Hyped up prices to fall and get the DLC's at a later Date, the Vanilla is pretty good to be going on with for starters....

ABOVE ALL..This is the future for gaming, and, like me, you like gaming and so wish to continue in the future, you are going to have to upgrade your comp anyway...so go ahead, buy the game, you can't lose really, because upgrading hardware is pretty much a given, indeeeeed!!! :D

HAVE FUN!

Not too bad, if you've got a mid range pc you can run it easily

Best going visiting the retailer that you purchased it from...OR googling the make and model of your laptop tagging 'specs' after it...

To be honest, so many people buy a computer and don't realise the importance of knowing it's specs...It's understandable because we only just expect to plug it in and/or turn it on..

At least once you know this, you will have learned something about you and your computer :)

With vanilla skyrim its not hard to run at all. But with skyrim at its FULLEST potention with ENB mods and such, that is very demanding.

It's not too demanding, depending on your system. There are lots of options to make it easier for older pc's to run the game.

Op, go to your start menu, type in Run, then dxdiag, you'll find out your specs there.
