Re: FFXI + Laptop help
be sure to reduce the background resolution to match ffxi's resolution or less. update the driver to latest version. don't run ffxi in windowed mode (it's slower). when you're in game, open the in-game menu and reduce how many characters allowed on screen, hide the effects (bard's song effect for example), etc.
you might be able to gain some performance from that.
