    I sensed a great disturbance. As if a thousand nerds just cried out at once and then were silenced.

    That should play WoW just fine. Try with 4 preset 1600x900 vsync enabled. Should be getting well over 30 fps in a 5 man.

    Full screen or windows is best?

    I use windowed fullscreen cause i alt tab a lot, otherwise use fullscreen over windowed.

    At that resolution I'd use fullscreen or full windowed; for a higher resolution display screen space matters less to me, at 1920x1200 and 2560x1440 I use windowed.

    All personal preference really, there's not a whole lot of performance loss (probably not even noticeable) in windowed mode.
    Super casual.

    Lets see...

    http://support.hp.com/au-en/document/c05392764
    Intel® Core™ i5-7200U
    8 GB DDR4-2133 SDRAM (1 x 8 GB)
    Intel® HD Graphics 620

    Personally not really a laptop I would've chosen. Its a 17'' machine with parts normally found in 11 or 13'' ultra portables. Battery size is pathetically small (iPads have more), its Ethernet card is ancient (not 1gbps????) and Wi-Fi module is something I'd expect in the cheapest of smartphones.

    I wouldnt have bought it, How much did you pay for it ? Also make sure you dont have any programs running in the background too.

    It may be just a setting not supported by your computer. But it's strange.
