Hello. I am seeking to buy a laptop that could run all the content of World of Warcraft for the lowest possible price. I don't mind if the settings are set to the minimum so long as the gameplay itself is unaffected and the game runs well, however ugly it may look. Price preferred in pounds or euro. :D 

Thank you in advance.

I fail to see how that constitutes an answer to my question. I didn't ask you as regards what I should or should not play.

Lowest possible price? Do you want to consider re-conditioned laptops? Or even a used laptop? You could probably get one for less than £150 that will do what you want.

WoW will run on a very low spec laptop, i've seen it run on a net book!

min spec would be 2GB ram
256mb graphics
20GB free on HDD

I run WoW on my Dell XPS

Windows 7 64bit
1GB 8800 GTX SLI graphics
4GB RAM
Physics Card


The lower you go the laggier it gets, you'll notice it more in Dalaran and raids.

To run around solo, almost anything will work, at least in low population areas.

To do raids decently though, you need a bit of power, mostly cpu.
Minimum
dual 2.0 ghz cpu
2gb ram
ati 3200 or even intel 4500 integrated graphics will work if you turn off some graphics details.


An i3 laptop would work great.

Hey will WoW run on a dell inspiron 1545 laptop?
July 20, 2010 9:27:36 PM

just about anything will handle WoW, Intel GMA, Celeron Single Core, DDR2 etc.

This link shows frames per second with various graphics chips in different games, including WoW.

Is your 1545 the single core Celeron variety?

To answer your question, Intel integrated 4500mhd will run WoW on low settings at about 35fps. I'm guessing they measured this in the beginning areas, the higher level areas get more graphically demanding. A dedicated graphics card would work much better. In parties, raids, and populated cities a fast dual core cpu will keep your fps from diving. You could play alone, but that isn't what a MMO is really all about in my opinion. A single core with intel 4500 can run the game, but I wouldn't recommend it.
