The hype train has arrived. Choo choo motherfuckers.
I want this.
We don't have a computer in the house that will run it.
Yeah, the system requirements definitely mean you need a dedicated desktop or gaming laptop at the least.
However that could also just be because modded Skyrim is a heap of garbage due to the 32-bit constraints. Once Skyrim's Special Edition is released, more modern computers and multi-core processors should, in theory, be able to be taken greater advantage of, which may lead to better performance on less stronger rigs (though that would also have to be balanced against the updated graphics and ENB filter they appear to be using). They have said, for example, while they don't recommend running Enderal on a laptop with below those specs, even a few members of the dev team are doing just that.
At the very least the Enderal team are aware of Skyrim SE and since SKSE doesn't appear to be a requirement for Enderal, unless it's somehow bundled into the installer itself, they may not have as much trouble coverting to SE as other mods will.
It's also possible that in the meantime someone will reduce the size of the graphics in the game for the sake of performance. I know a couple of automated programs which make the process easy, so if someone else doesn't do it, I may myself.
