    I used to be a big strategy game player, since I got hooked on the first Age of Empires years ago. With my ultra portable notebook, intense gaming is out, but I still have a taste for a good strategy romp every now and again. The biggest issue is finding an hour or more to play. Anyway, I was at Sam's this weekend and saw Rise of Nations for less than $25. I picked it up, played it two hours yesterday, and am now cursing myself. I know it's been out for a while, there's even an expansion pack, but the game is really very good. If you like strategy, go for it. Runs perfectly on my PM 1.0 with 1GB RAM.

    yeah, I agree with several points you made:
    1) RON rocks
    2) RTS games are great games that have very low requirements and provide hours of fun [:)]

    I also have RON and its expansion, and I love it! I've already done many 3-way games with friends over LAN, and it is fun! We love just building up huge armies with the most population possible (Be Bantu, build Colussus wonder, have a merchant get the rare resource Peacocks) and bringing them together for a massive battle. I am also an RTS lover, I have Warcraft III and the expansion, Starcraft and its expansion, all the Age Of Empire games and expansions, and more! RTS rules!

    Good things come in small packages.

    I've been getting into RTS games a little more myself. They are one of the perfect genres for laptops in that most games aren't too intensive to a point where it affects performance and they're very easy to pause/save and pick up where you left off later. My other favorite genre are simulations, but the only one I have on my v505 is SimCity 4. Anything more involved like Flight Simulator is reserved for the desktop machine. I've been on a big RTS kick lately so in addition to C&C: Generals (and expansion) and Rise of Nations (and expansion), I've also added Age of Empires 2, Age of Mythology, Tropico, and Civilization 3 (and expansions). I think I'll be busy for a while...
