Where to get a simple demo

    Hello.
    I'm using a rather old notebook and I want to know if Unity's standalone-player projects work on this machine, and with what performance.

    I figure it's less of a hassle to ask this than to download the 900MB Unity basic package to test myself, so I ask if anyone could build and share a simple Windows desktop application with some spinning primitives or something like this, so I can see the performance and how it handles on my machine.

    Regards.

    Hello.
    I didn't try the live demos because I don't want to install a web plugin in this machine.
    If it's not too much trouble, I would appreciate it if someone could build a simple "hello world" standalone and put it in FileDropper or similar so I can check it out.

    EDIT: Actually, I did download the web-player now and tested the demos which looked like the most simple ones.
    I was surprised to see them running very fast on this old machine, and the process of installing the web-player being hassle-free.
    So you were right.
