need advice for purchasing new laptop
Thread DetailsLast Edited by acepilot55 October 10, 2016 at 08:53 AM
I started checking out deals here, and keep seeing the same replies to every deal that pops up on the front page, such as ...
"that i5-xxxx processor sucks, it's only good for basic web browsing" (some even say that about i7-xxxx)
- or -
"the 940m, 950m, etc is complete crap for gaming. wait for the 10xx to come out"
Now, all I need this for is playing World of Warcraft, preferably at high settings. My old laptop was capable of running WoW at medium-high, so shouldn't anything made in the last couple years be a major improvement?
Can anyone recommend one at $600 or less? Not looking to do VR or anything fancy.
I see an Acer on the front page now, but everyone is complaining about durability... which brand has a good rep nowadays?
Old lappy specs for reference:
Intel P8400 (2.26 GHz Core 2 Duo)
4 GB RAM (DDR3 1066 MHz)
NVidia GeForce 9800M GTS (1 GB GDDR3)
