Aspire One Gaming: Frets on Fire

I did a post on this for my Eee a while back, but my Eee runs 700mhz slower than the AA1. I found the Eee capable of playing the game, if only just. So I figure it will play much, much better on the One.... right? Not quite....

It loads a bit faster than on the slower Eee, and animations seem a bit smoother, but it really comes down to the integrated GPU. The game is still quite playable, and I enjoy it very much, even if I am not that good at it.

Please note: the video makes the game seem choppy. This is not so. My Sony Cybershot camera is obviously feeling its age. The game runs much smoother than the video lets on.

Required Specs: (from

OS: Windows XP
Processor: Pentium 4
Memory: 128 MB
Video Memory: *A fairly fast OpenGL graphics card with decent drivers*
Sound Card: DirectX Compatible
Keyboard & Mouse

I have an xbox 360 usb guitar that I have hooked up to the One, I do not use a keyboard to play this.

Verdict: As I said, the game is very playable. I once even played a song right next to someone playing the same song on their PS2, the game ran at identical speeds.
