Could this laptop handle WoW

http://www.simplyacer.com/Acer_Aspire_7736G_667585.html

I've got my heart set on this bad boy and i was just wondering if this thing could run WoW at med-max settings maintaining 20~60 fps if i have to play on low and get 60fps+ then im still happy because i could put some settings up.

Yes i realise this is a WTF 17" screen its a desktop replacement ive had since vanilla lol ( i got 10fps in dala and 15 in raids with my 4year old comp xD ).

The ram is DDR2 and graphics card is GDDR3 if thats any help i managed to find that out.

Please could i some reply's asap ;) :hello:

Cheers

  1. It will run WoW but you will have a bit of lag regardless. Have you looked at the Asus laptops that come with Nvidia GT based video cards?

  2. 20-60 FPS is a wide, wide gap. you'd likely be able to get 30-40 on avg...but whatever the case is (a) you'll always lag in WG xD (b) 10-15 fps is terribad! so upgrade.

    ever thought bout building a desktop?
  3. Desktop doesnt tick the boxes sadly

    my price range is £550-£600 also i want a 17" screen and a "good" graphics card and i thought that the acer aspire 7736G was the right thing for it but if any of you guys can find a better built system for the same price i'll look into that :)

    also 2.5-3+ battery life is always helpful

    Main usage - WoW , Msn , Sony Vegas Editing Software ,and Safari internet surfing

    ;)
  4. What are your boxes that need ticking?

    I'm putting together a WoW box that will run 1080p on my 50" TV for about £450
  5. boxes needed tick

    17" screen
    2.5+ battery Life
    HD screen
    Gaming Laptop that will run WoW pretty smooth at high settings or medium settings and also editing software ( Sony Vegas )
    £500-£600 spending money
  6. And herein lies the problem - half-decent laptop GPUs are what cost the money.

    Truth be told I've not been able to match that Acer unit you listed, so short of increasing your budget I think you've found what you were after.

    Enjoy it!
  7. My laptop is similiar to this one, and it runs WoW fine, ~30-60 FPS on medium settings. With the low end FPS in Dalaran, obviously. I am not sure how the G210M GPU compares to mine though.

    Dell XPS M1530
    Core 2 Duo T9300, 2.5ghz, 6mb L2 Cache, 800mhz FSB
    4gb RAM DDR2 667mhz
    Nvidia 8600m GT 256mb DDR3
  8. Dude... Just get a 400 pound desktop and a netbook, then u can have a better gaming experience and do what ever u wanna do with the mobility of the netbook.

    The m1530 is on another level, the OP needs a bargain latop that will play WoW. The only laptop that I have seen that can hold it's own for such a price is the ASUS K61IC-X2.

    I have the m1530 as well and even though it can play WoW it is overpriced bigtime.....
  10. The res is 1600x900 so odds are you can play on high with it. The biggest boost in FPS in WoW is a quad core CPU, WoW is a CPU based game, sure better GPU helps some but not near as much as a quad core CPU would.
  11. Good luck finding a laptop with a quad at a decent price =)
  12. Thanks for the correction, OvrClkr.

    I forgot that I picked up my m1530 on a Christmas special last year. $849.99 w/ free shipping, I believe.
  13. You got a great deal then, I purchased the m1530 when it came out and payed around 1,500$....
  14. cheers for the helpful comments guess im stuck with this :)
