    Yeah, you are wrong. Both are important, but GPU requirements are much lower.
    Never going to log into this garbage forum again as long as calling obvious troll obvious troll is the easiest way to get banned.
    Trolling should be.

    told her that but she wants a laptop unfortunately

    If I am correct they user lower quality parts than for exampe Asus, which I adore btw. ASUS ftw!

    I might be biased against them but numbers say they have high fail rates.


    If you want my opinion: take anything but a HP or Lenovo.
    They all use wd/seagate hdds anymore. They all use motherboards who are made by foxconn, they all have the same optical drives and same ram manufacturers anymore. For everyday use about any new laptop with an i5 with some sort of discrete graphics will do for light gaming.

    You don't know in what situation they deem it playable, they can claim it is playable on high settings and only tried it during solo questing. I doubt they base their claims on 25man raiding.

    I got myself a Medion laptop, which is pretty robust and has some very decent parts in it and it runs wow pretty smooth. However, I basically went for hardware and not for design or weight. If she wants to carry it around a lot, this might not be your best option.

    That said, I would always recommend a PC over a laptop when it comes down to gaming. In my opinion, laptops are terrible gaming devices that should be avoided if possible.

    They ran it at 1024x768 with Medium settings and got ~75 fps or so... but 1024x768 is small as heck
    I think the point is that the screen isn't going to do 1920x1080 (only 13666x780ish which is fine for a 14" screen) anyways, thus you don't really need as powerful of a graphics card. It should do fine on medium settings even in a 10-25man raid.

    I'm not going to say it's going to be the best laptop for gaming, but that isn't what OP is asking for either.
