Need 60fps travel laptop

I am so spoiled by my desktop that I don't think I could play below High settings anymore. I am just wondering if this would run WoW at least 50 fps on High.

I already have a desktop that will run everything on Ultra, I want something that will run it as close to 60 as possible. I can deal with High settings and even Good settings, I just can't deal with raiding under 20. I can deal with 50, 40 and maybe even 30. What do you think I could get out of that Acer?

The Acer won't give you 60 fps in raids, but it will give you playable FPS @ high settings.

As long as I can get at least 40 fps on Good settings I will be content.

I don't know about 40 FPS; all I can guarantee is that it won't be something like below 20 FPS. ;x

The Dell should be much better, but it does have higher native resolution (1080p).

Dell. Both Acers come with terrible GPU for the price.

So I guess the processor speed doesn't matter as much as I thought it did for fps? Sorry for being so dumb lol. Also the one Acer has a 4GB NVIDIA GeForce GT 730M opposed to the Dell's 2GB GT 650M, isn't the 730 better? :x My problem is I don't wanna spend the extra $100 on the Dell xD

No. 730M is significantly worse than 650M

Okay, thank you, I guess I will go with the Dell unless you can think of something better for around the same price :)

Well, the Dell is a refurbished laptop, which is why it's cheap for what you get. A new laptop with similar features will run you almost $900.

Should I not buy refurbished?

If you want to play WoW on Ultra on a laptop get ready to spend 1.5k-2k and with that price you could get a desktop with a 680 that could max every game.


Is that including the monitor though?

It's a luck of the draw. Function wise, they all work, but cosmetically, you may get ones that look pretty bad.
