I am planning on replacing my current laptop this holiday season and I would love to be able to play WoW. Im really not all that tech savy, i understand most the basic concepts behind hardware but i am really clueless when it comes down to specifics. So, I dont plan on going any higher than the 1299$ model. The one with the NVIDIA GeForce 9400M graphics card default settings, so 2gigs of Ram and 2.0 Ghz processor Ive played Wow on two computers so far. the first is my 4 year old Power Mac G5 with the following specs (thankyou system profiler =]): Machine Name: iMac G5 Machine Model: PowerMac8,1 CPU Type: PowerPC G5 (3.0) Number Of CPUs: 1 CPU Speed: 1.8 GHz L2 Cache (per CPU): 512 KB Memory: 768 MB Bus Speed: 600 MHz GRAPHICS CARD: Chipset Model: GeForce FX 5200 Type: Display Bus: AGP Slot: AGP VRAM (Total): 64 MB On this computer, i found that Burning Crusade ran smoothly enough for me, i had a little bit of issue in shattrath but beyond that i was very pleased. i havent done any beta testing for lich king on this computer, but im assuming that it should run fairly similarly and thats exactly what i want. I dont plan on playing WoW on this computer anymore My currently laptop, which i played wow on extensively with is an 13 inch HP Pavillion dv2000. unfortunately it is now broken and i dont have access to the tech specs on the computer but i do know i got the model with 1gig of ram and it uses an AMD (1.8 ghz i THINK) processor, with an nVidia graphics card which i dont know the specifics of, but when i bought it about a year ago i got the basics. While playing WoW on this computer i was EXTREMELY disappointed. It would get hot very quickly and i went through many cooling pads which only really gave me about 30 more minutes before it was too hot to really use. i also found that even on very low settings FPS and lag between button presses (on the screen, the use of abilities/casting and even typing had fairly significant lag time). Im not sure what causes these issues, but ive heard a few things. first is the graphics card and memory (RAM) ... and i guess VRAM were shared, and the space wasnt enough to run the game smoothly. I also heard that WoW just doest work on laptops which was really disappointing. SO, sorry for the huge rant but to sum everything up, im going to get myself the new Macbook, regular settings (as stated above) and i am wondering if my gaming experiance will be alright. I dont want to be disappointed with similar gameplay to my current laptop... im just looking for a computer than will allow me to play the game well enough. Im sorry if im being too specific or giving too much detail but i really didnt know how to explain myself. I mentioned the two computers ive played wow on so you guys would understand where my standards are at. if i could get my gameplay on the macbook to be as good or better than my PowerMac G5 then i would be extremely pleased. Thanks in advance!
