I have a old HP laptop and I play wow and it has gotten really slow even on low graphic settings. So I'm looking to get a new laptop and not really sure what I'm looking for in one. I only play wow so just looking for something that will play it smooth on high settings. Any suggestions would be great. Thanks.

Does it have to be a Laptop (e.g. Do you travel around a lot or does it sit on your desk all day never moving an inch?). The reason being you can get a desktop PC much more cheaply than a laptop if you're willing to sacrifice portability. It's no issue if you want a Laptop however, I just want to know whether you actually use it for moving around or not.


Otherwise, could you fill out this:


Laptop or Desktop?

My budget for the new computer is: 

What are the primary uses for this computer (IE: mail, web browsing, programming, games, etc)? 

What software do you intend on using on the computer? 

Do you play games? If so, what type of games? 

Do you tend to have a lot of programs running at the same time, or do you close every program when you are done using it? 

Do you store a lot of pictures or music on the computer?

Will you be overclocking?

Location for online shopping/shipment/prices?

How many monitors are you planning to use?

Do you need peripherals? OS?

Any particular reason why you are upgrading?

We can't give you an answer until you post what your budget is. That is what will tell you what you can get. I know one that will play your game great, but are you ready to pay $900-$1200 just to play a game?

Some brands will probably be better choices than others, regardless of which price range & hardware specs you end up shooting for.

For sure, it would be better if you add some additional information about a laptop you are looking for. It is hard to give any suggestions considering you are playing only WoW. Anyway, I would recommend you to have a look at gaming laptops. Just compare some models and try to choose the best one according to your preference and budget. Good luck man.
