That's true, they do run fine in Dosbox.

Ultimately, it's up to Sue. :)

I would recommend the older Toshiba Tecra laptops if you can find them in good shape. The 400 to 700 series. The 8100 Tecra is also a good idea, it is quite the tough laptop too. Though even if you do find one of these in good shape, I doubt they'll run for 10+ hours without a new or custom batter, ...

Sorry if I missed any specific reason why dosbox is the (required) choice.

Just curious! :)

If not for the water, I would suggest Wild Metal (Country) but another possibility could be Infestation ( http://www.mobygames.com/game/windows/infestation ) although that one's from 2000 and it's unlikely you could play that on a 486.

Dogs of War, perhaps? That was an RTS that let you take control of units.
