F@H on Laptop: good idea?

Postby gamepyrate » Sat Oct 25, 2003 4:16 pm

I was just wondering if you guys thought it was a good idea to put FAH on a laptop... Maybe with a limited CPU usage%?

i would personally give it a shot , although battery life will be limited unless you want to have it permenantly connected to the home power supply

nah, i don't think so. gamepyrate, try folding on the lap top. if it doesn't work out ok, then that's how it is. if it were my laptop, i'd fold only when hooked up to the AC converter (or charging- haven't had the luxury of a laptop yet).

Aye, she's fine to fold with, but leave it hooked to mains.

My main folding machine is a laptop, Dell 1.7 Ghz. Works fine for me.
