Hey there helpful browsers,
I was recently in the market for a gaming notebook, and after some browsing (and saving..) I decided on the m9750 Alienware laptop. Once I got it, I figured I'd test it out with some older games to see how it handles them. I installed Diablo II and it runs pretty well, but keeps my CPU performance maxed at 100% the entire time it's being played. I've heard this is pretty bad for it, but I thought this computer would easily handle such a non-demanding game. Is it normal for this to happen, and if so, is it ok to play with the performance maxed? Any thoughts are appreciated.
