Hey all,

I'm new on these boards :huh: I have a question about a new laptop i want to buy for my little brother and was hoping anyone of you could help me pick one out. I have been searching around and came into this website:

I have been watching the first laptop in that list. Do you think that one is good enough ? My brother is playing online games. I think he plays a game called world of warcraft and its also going to be used for schhol work. Could anyone check out that laptop for me?

Thanks :thumbsup:

:thumbsup: To Bleeping Computer

That laptop wont even begin to play World of warcraft. That computer will probably be ok for school though (Internet, Typing notes, web browsing etc..)
PC System Requirements
  • OS: Windows 2000 (Service Pack 4) or Windows XP (Service Pack 2)
  • Processor: Intel Pentium3 800MHz or AMD Athlon 800MHz
  • Memory:
    • Minimum: 512 MB RAM
    • Recommended: 1GB RAM
  • Video:
    • Minimum: 32MB 3D graphics processor with Hardware Transform and Lighting, such as an NVIDIA GeForce 2 class card or above
    • Recommended: 64MB VRAM 3D graphics processor with Vertex and Pixel Shader capability, such as an NVIDIA GeForce FX 5700 class card or above
  • Sound: DirectX-compatible sound card
For a good all around Laptop to play games you will need something with at least a p4 with 1024 mb of memory and a Nvidia Go graphics card or ATI equivalent. Playing first person shooter games on a laptop is not an inexpensive option and usually leaves the player wishing that had bought a PC for allot less money.
