I just got it today. Haven't noticed any crashing, And i play on high in 720p on my laptop.
My specs aren't that great either.
intel core i3 370m 2.4ghz
500gb hard drive with windows 7 at 5400rpm
ati radeon hd 5470 at 512mb
I play it on my 27inch monitor. It's pretty sweet.
I was shocked when it said detecting recommended settings and it was set at high. Maybe the developers of this game did a good job in making it less of a resource hog. Loving the game.
It's much better optimized than Oblivion, which only used one core (it was basically a console port from 2005 after all). I expect even after the big texture overhauls come out, it'll still run better. Might be able to stuff it full of 300 mods with minimal crashing
I just cleared Bleak Falls Barrow on my mage, the dungeon that was in all the gameplay demos. I need to head up to Winterhold and get some new spells, the flamethrower is starting to get dull.
