I'm thinking of buying a cheap / mid-range laptop, with the intention of running World of Warcraft on it. I understand the limitations of laptop GPUs, so I don't expect to push the sliders all the way up, but would like a reasonable performance with a decent graphics image. I don't plan to play any other games on it, they will remain on my desktop machine. With the laptop I can play WoW in the lounge while the missus sits next to me and watches all her crappy reality shows (Celebrity, Big Brother etc :-O )
I think my budget will be capped at about £500 but I won't even bother if playing WoW is just a frustrating experience. I already have a work laptop for surfing, email etc.
Can anyone tell me of their experience on WoW on a laptop, and let me know what CPU / GPU combo their laptop has?
Just my luck, as I consider a laptop, my main machine starts playing up. Problems with POST, occasional power downs etc.
I have stripped, cleaned and reseated everything (RAM, CPU, Cooler, Gfx card, HDDs etc), but it still persists. I think it may be my PSU at fault (due to power downs), so I will try replacing that first.
