I'm going to buy a laptop before the exp comes out. I've been gaming on the same desktop I've built a couple years back and I've been constantly upgrading it. I'm going to college now and I need something mobile but I still want the ability to go big when I'm at my apartment. So my idea is to probably buy a macbook pro 13' and play wow on it when I'm not home then when I am home use the hdmi output onto my TV.
If I ran wow off an external harddrive would the laptop heat up less?
Also, would I lose performance by running it off of a ext hdd, I mean flash is faster and more energy efficient the spinning hdd and it's going through usb. I saw someone mention ext hdd when I did the search function for macbook pro 13'.
I'd also appreciate any feedback on the performance of the new macbook pro 13'
