Post Computer Specifications?
Can't seem to find these anywhere

Can a dev please list the required specs & the recommended?
I am going to buy this game regardless sooner or later, I just want to know, because if my laptop can handle the game I will be buying it a LOT sooner than later.

Laptop has 1.0GHz dual-core processor AMD, 4gig DDR3 ram. 500GB HD space.

We haven't really gathered performance specs at any point.

Could be a good idea however.

Unless there's been dramatic optimisation since a year or two ago (unlikely considering how much feature development there has been) your processor is going to bottleneck performance. 1.0GHz just isn't really enough for CC (or any physics heavy game), however there are some tips and tricks for making the game run faster at the cost of physical fidelity here which should make the game run more or less tolerably.

If there's still a tech demo available then you should try that, if not then you can take a leap of faith ;)

Alright... darn guess I gotta wait.

It's because I can play games like torchlight and Faster Than Light on my laptop without problems with such low specs, was thinking CC might be able to run on it, i'm fine with it being like 30fps, but anything below might not be as good.

As for my desktop I gotta hold out before purchasing, no time to play at home, too much school and homework + job.

Well, CC runs physics sim where each pixel is an individual object, so it's miles ahead of torchlight and FTL cpu tax wise.
