The first thing you've probably noticed is that the graphics cards needed for both recommended and minimum system requirements for King's Quest are identical. The trusty old 8800 GT is a very low end card by today's standards, suggesting King's Quest isn't a very demanding game visually. The minimal graphics and recommended hardware hint that there won't be a great deal of graphical options to mess around with.

The upshot is that the King's Quest reboot is going to work great on a wide range of systems, in particular it's going to be friendly for older systems and laptop gamers. The recommended requirements for King's Quest are still extremely low end, the only possible problem is that install size, which is a relatively large 20GB. King's Quest is an episodic game coming in five parts, so there is a chance you'll only need to have a fifth or so of this installed at any one time.
