    Okay I am thinking whether to buy skyrim for PC now (as it is cheaper) or wait a year and get GOTY edition for PS3 when they fix whatever bugs I've heard on on it right now.

    My question is, can my Lenovo G570 play it?

    I know that when I bought Fallout 3 for it second hand, I would seem to run perfectly (no lag at all) and then just randomly crash :O so should I avoid buying Skyrim for PC?

    Seeing as it has a Intel HD 3000 (I am not sure of this, please correct me if i am wrong), it may play on the lowest settings and at about 20 fps. I would wait for a person like Originality ([m]http://gbatemp.net/user/123382-originality/[/m]) to post as he knows a lot more than I.

    Yes you can play it, the Graphics card may be bottled neck but it should be playable, just put the graphics to low or medium settings.

    But i'm not sure about the crashing part. You might want to pirate it to test it out first, if you pirate that is.

    Bethesda games are notorious for crashing, it's not your computer, most likely, is the culprit.

    Graphics: Intel HD Graphics 3000

    A quick google search shows it's playable, but the PS3 version would look better and provide smoother gameplay.

    If you haven't played them, you could probably run the previous 2 titles more easily (TES III: Morrowind, and TES IV: Oblivion) GoTY versions on the PC should be cheap and wait for the PS3 GoTY edition for Skyrim ;)

    Well I got the torrent one and it is working and everything but it is only letting me play it in a smallish window to the side of my desktop. I can't maximise it or play it fullscreen and I have tried all short cut buttons.

    How do I play it in fullscreen?
