Buying a new laptop, but not sure what to look for.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, as the title says im looking to buy a new laptop mainly for playing WoW until I can get my desktop to my new place (gotta wait till spring).

Price range would be $500-600 CAD and if I could run medium-high graphics and maintain around 30+ fps i'd be satisfied.

I was looking at this here and really wonder if it can deliver what I want but any recommendations would be awesome

I didn't know Newegg had a Canadian site , but this Lenovo is $630 CAD if that' okay. Lenovo IdeaPad Z570

If you absolutely have to go between $500-600 CAD.. umm.. the one you chose would do.

But if you can pay a bit more, this is a really good deal . Free shipping too ;D.

Roughly 68FPS on medium according to notebookcheck.net, and ~24FPS on all high.. so you could tweak the settings and have a definitely nice WoW experience.

It's even $70 off right now so..!!!
Hope I helped
