"j2chess is a nice chess program that is written entirely in the Java programming language and consequently runs on any platform where a suitable Java Runtime Environment is available (version 1.4.2 or higher required)." 

Note: The faster your processor, the better "thinking" you'll get with the program.  

Also from the website:

j2chess key features are:
  • as long as you have java, j2chess is all-platform friendly :-)
  • nice and easy to use
  • strength and other various settings can be changed
  • symmetric multiprocessing (SMP) support for maximum engine strength (= uses multi-cores/CPU system)
  • casual, blitz and blitz Fischer style available for new games
  • opening book with about 15,000 games
  • export current game in Portable Game Notation (PGN)
  • load games in Portable Game Notation (PGN)
