Just so you guys know, I'm running PCSX2 on a Lenovo Ideapad Y560 laptop, win7 x64. It runs most games at full 60fps, although there are the occasional slowdowns up to 45+fps especially in crowded renders. Not generally a problem though and it barely affects playability (unless, I dunno, you're one of those fps whores or something). I've seen too many ignorant forum posts saying laptops can't run PCSX2 well. Of course if you're trying to pack it onto those budget netbooks, that's just idiotic. Stick it in a decent machine like I did and it can run just as well. - Trucidation 16:36, December 5, 2010 (UTC)

I realise even though it's an i7, it's still a stock 720. As such it doesn't always give the best performance, but it's good enough for most games unless - as I mentioned above - you're a framerate whore. I prefer to use this computer for benchmarking though, instead of my Falcon DRX. That laptop's running SLI plus SSD drives, along with the best CPU in the market; of course it'd blow through everything with ease. But I won't be using that beast for reference precisely because it's not an everyday machine.

I mean, when you write a travel guide for people driving cars, you don't use a Ferrari or Lamborghini as a reference, do you? It would be a pretty useless guide since the average guy is just driving a regular sedan. So it's pointless to say I can get 200+ fps with my DRX when the Lenovo - a more average kinda laptop - just manages the standard 60 fps. It's using the lowest i7 as well so I don't think that disqualifies it from being a reference since many people have builds which can match or surpass it. Hell, it's not even overclocked, and it's a freaking laptop. Those people on single core CPUs should quit bitching about the emulator's performance and get a modern computer. - Trucidation 00:13, 9 January 2011 (UTC)
