Just to point out that I am not looking to play the game on ultra or even high. Just on medium and lower or so that I can do raids and dungeons without issues and frame rate drops.

Here they are:

2) http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/laptops-netbooks/laptops/...

3) http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/laptops-netbooks/laptops/...

Thanks :)

#1 and# 3 are probably your best bet(same specs), especially with the 8GB of ram vs. 4GB on #2. Save yourself 50 quid and just get #3, unless you need the gimmicky touch/flip screen.

I know this would probably sound harsh but I would never buy a laptop from PC world in the UK. Absolutely clueless staff, inflated prices and I don't want to even think if you need to reply on their technical support.

Okay, I can find the same laptop anywhere else. But which one between #2 and #3 is better?

I can't really advise you I'm afraid. But you can use this website http://www.notebookcheck.net/ and look for each of the laptops' grahpics cards. You will then be able to see at what FPS they can play World of Warcraft in different resolutions.

World of Warcraft really runs well on the a good CPU, and it runs great on a i5. I upgraded to the i5 3750K from a Pentium core2dou and the the performance gain was awesome. The two GPUs on the notebooks Radeon HD 8670M & the R5 M230 don't appear to be that far apart in performance the R5 is better but not by as big a margin as the i5 is over the A8 APU. I'm not a notebook person so perhaps the notebook versions don't have the same ratios as the desktop version do, but I'd pick the i5 version and up the RAM to 8GB.

The one with the i5 is much, much better for WoW. I mean, like 500% better for World of Warcraft. That game devours AMD CPUs, due to how it handles multiple cores (or rather, how it doesn't handle them). The middle build, with the i5, will hold up much better, even despite the slightly weaker iGPU.
