$400 laptop capable of light World of Warcraft gaming - Page 3

post #21 of 25
I am basically looking for the same thing, I had a (what I thought was) GREAT LT my husband bought me for moms day 2 yrs ago. I wow'd on it daily, it had integrated graphics and still i stayed above 45fps, had all the adds i wanted and wasnt using exclusively for WOW. Unfortunately I ended up being one of those ppl HP screwed...I had that faulty nvidia card and even tho nvidia paid for the malfunction HP chose NOT to pay to fix the issue. Same issue was had with Apple and Dell but they paid to fix the problem. Anyway i went from 45=fps to 4-6fps in one day. I have desktops but they cant go with me an i have problems sitting at a desk with my 10 month old on my hip. Its easier to have a LT. So can anyone recommend a machine, that will run wow decently, i dont use sound and the graphics can be set to the lowest possible. I am not a person who cares if i see the weather or my shadow beneath me. I just want to play =)
Did I mention that if u are gonna say anything HP, dont bother, i prefer not allowing them to stick it to me again...

my hp dm1 e350 apu , 3gb of ram , 7200 rpm 250 gb hard drive
runs wow like a boss

I don't see how anyone could struggle running wow unless they are pushing graphics outside of low without a real graphics card. Which is silly in its own right.

I've been wondering how the dm1 is at gaming, the E350 has a low clock speed, so I was wondering how it handled real fun. What settings are you running the game at?

You can buy SB i3 laptop with HD3000 graphics for $499
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834214189

This is much better than E-350, even at gaming.
