the Minis were not really made for gaming, your options are limited, these systems were basically made for email and surfing the internet..the major selling point of these systems is the size and weight of the unit and the portability and battery life is what entices people in to buying them....not gaming

unless you are using an external monitor games like GTA 3 are really too small, not to mention the processor's not really up to games like that as where they are pretty graphics intensive and for a machine that doesnt even have a graphics card...even if you consider the Broadcomm HD accelerator card.....it will run kinda slow and sluggish

not very well..if at all...Call of Duty 2 is a pretty graphic intensive game for a Mini with pretty limited graphics and no video card..easiest thing to do is just go to their webpage and look at the minimum system requirements...its that simple

Call of Duty: Black Ops is even worse, basically the newer the game the less chance you have, the games are getting more & more graphical and thats bad when you have a Mini



Happy Holidays....

I'm running Starcraft, Unreal Anthology, and Starwars Battlefront all successfully and at good res on my Mini 1012 HD. Most of the older games should run fine.However, once you get to stuff like COD2 and the very intensive graphics, it'll fall on it's face.
