I've got a low-end laptop (a Dell Inspiron, running Ubuntu) which satisfies 95% of my needs perfectly. It's not just that I like and it happens to be low-end; I like it because it's low-end. I like that it's light and thin, and that I don't have to be too paranoid about spilling tea over it.
However, now and then I like to play video games; in particular, I really like Crusader King II. I tried installing this on my laptop, but it runs like ice-cold molasses, unplayably slow.
So my question is, Is there any kind of hardware that I can plug into my current laptop, as you would a removable hard drive, that will allow me run to CK2 at a reasonable speed? Or would I have to get a whole new computer?
I'm more than happy to be told this is a stupid question. I suspect it might be. But I thought I'd check before spending money.
