I use a Dell notebook for all my gaming. It is about 2 years old now. With a wide screen and a full qwerty keyboard with 10 key, it's a beast! Sometimes I attach an external monitor for some dual screen action. I just wish there was a non-full screen option besides 800X600.

I play on a 10" Gateway netbook. Overall the game works out pretty good, but occasionally it slows and goes in frames, so for me to be 100% satisfied, there will have to be a way to get the graphics to go smoother. Right now I'm at about 91% satisfied with the performance of W101 on my netbook.

I play wizard101 on a netbook. :) It is a Dell inspirion mini. It works well until the processor gets hot, then it starts to be very slow which can be bad when you are trying to dodge monsters. :( It also takes a while to transport somewhere.
Third, there is a lag in battles. But, if you just want something light to play wizard on it is fine.

I only have a laptop, and i don't know of this happens to desktop users, but it like overloads my laptop. i think kingsisle should make 2 different types of the game: one for laptop users and one for desktop. my game laggs severely and actually crashed my entire graphics card, forcing me to spend my entire savings on a new laptop which is having the same problem. they need to make a version that requires a less powerful graphics card and less powerful proccesor, since most laptops have pentium M proccesors.
