The specs of my computer are
Processor: Intel Core i5 4300U @ 1.90 Ghz
Memory: Available physical memory 2.58 GB
Graphics: Intel HD Graphics Family (it's a Lenovo T440s Thinkpad)
From the Stellaris page on Steam the recommended specs are
Processor: AMD Phenom II X4 850 @ 3.3 Ghz or Intel i3 2100 @ 3.1 Ghz
Memory: 4 GB RAM
Graphics: AMD HD 6850 / or Nvidia GTX 560TI, with 1024MB VRAM
When I tried Can You RUN it for Stellaris I got the "Sorry, your computer does not meet the minimum specifications required to run this product" diagnosis.
Now that I look at the Polaris Sector manual my computer may not be able to handle this game, either.
Ah well, it is springtime in Maine and I should be outside anyway.
