Hello all,

Trying to find a decent laptop for my girlfriend to use in France to play WoW on with me, as well as Skype. Our budget is 4-600.

Screen size doesnt matter. Just want something that will run WoW on some nice settings and look good doing it!

Thanks!

-the cheaper, the better!

You think that I could go to BestBuy and get something of quality just as easy as from Newegg?

Hello jbramble;

A few options for you to look at:
lenovo IdeaPad Z570 15" notebook $550
Core i3 2310M(2.10GHz) CPU, 4GB RAM 500GB HDD 15.6" 1366x768 LCD w/ GeForce GT 520M.
Will run WoW on medium graphics nicely. But the included webcam is only 0.3MP, not ideal of Skype HD.


TOSHIBA Satellite L755D 15" notebook $530
AMD A-Series A4-3300M(1.9GHz) 4GB RAM, 500GB HDD 15.6" 1366x768 LCD w/ Radeon HD 6480G.
WoW on medium graphics but not quite as solid as above, mostly due to the slower APU speed. 1.3mp for Skype HD quality.

Oh man, I didnt even think about checking the camera's megapixels - just another thing to bog me down!

Well, I'm sure one of these will do haha

1.3mp is the least you want for Skype. 2.0mp is better.
And for best Skype experiance I'd want one of the premium aftermarket cameras vs a built into the laptop model.
Logitech QuickCam Pro 9000 2.0mp gives you better sound, video and flexibility to use the camera without moving the laptop around.

check ebay for the m11x. I got one locally for $400 and haven't looked back, it's got some gaming power, decent webcam but mostly it's really portable to take anywhere no problem and great battery life :)

Intel Hd graphics aren't the most ideal for gaming though, great for watching web videos :)
