FAQ - MapleStory Laptops
What is the best laptop for running multiple instances of Maplestory?
MapleStory is a light-weight game and doesn't require too much computer power to run. With that being said, you'll want a laptop with a lot of RAM if you plan on running MapleStory with multiple instances and a good CPU (Intel i5 or I7).
Can MapleStory work on Macs?
Currently MapleStory isn't supported on Mac OS. The only way to play MapleStory on your Mac is to Dual-Boot the laptop with a variation of Windows installed.
I just want a spare laptop for playing MapleStory, do I need an expensive laptop?
Since MapleStory can run well on most machines, you don't need an expensive laptop. However, in some areas of the game which have a lot of users on screen and flashy animations, you can get choppy FPS and lag. MapleStory isn't the most optimised game in the world, so a more powerful machine would be better than something that is older.
