Hey there!
 
I'm returning to WoW soon, and I'm going to be gaming on a laptop. I know, I know.. "laptops are not for gamers!". If it were up to me, I'd build a desktop.. but my wife prefers a laptop, and she becomes Onyxia when her enrage ability procs. Seeing as I don't want to die, I'm sticking to a laptop. :-)
 
I primarily game on consoles nowadays, with the exception being WoW. My wife may play Sims 4 from time to time on it. That's about it, so I don't need anything crazy. I'm hoping to achieve high / ultra settings in WoW (with the exception being raiding, if needed).
 
Nonetheless, I'm looking at this laptop right now for about $1500: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834232202
 
I've always been a fan of Asus, and think it's a great deal for $1500. I guess I'm wondering how you guys think WoW would run on this. If you guys wish to recommend a different laptop, similar in price, that would be great as well!
 
Looking forward to returning to Azeroth!

Looks like it will handle WoW just fine.  I would recommend using an external mouse, monitor, and keyboard for WoW.  It has both HDMI and Thunderbolt out so you can pipe it to your television if you want.

 

WoW is adding game time tokens now that you can buy for $20 and sell on the auction house for a guaranteed amount, starting value will be 30,000 gold.  So you will be able to legally buy gold now, or game time if you prefer.

 

I play a bit, I have 11 level 100 Alliance toons and 11 level 90+ Horde toons, and over 600 unique battle pets.  I'm on Lothar (Alliance) and Nazgrel (Horde).
