Hi all,
I would like to know, if there is a possibility to buy not expensive laptop which i can use to play this game? I am from Poland, so giving my maximum price is not good idea - the same laptop here is probably more expensive than in other countries.

I've read a lot of topics, but still i am not satisfied with answers. So, starting:
For sure i know, that this game is not using two cores (stupid, because since few good years it's standard). And since few years, 95% of laptops which are being produced, has at least 2 cores. It's hard to find something with only one core. And with cheaper laptops usually it's 2x1.65ghz...

We have one polish site with everything (also laptops), but there are mainly new laptops with at least two cores. I know - someone can write "buy with two, it's for the future". But I have PS3 - i am playing mainly this platform. laptop i am using occasionally, but from time to time it could be nice to play games here. So looking in the future is not for me, because after buying new laptop i'd like to spend with it 4-5 years (like with my actual one).

so my first question - 2x1.65ghz is too weak, right? I think min requirement is 2ghz...

More - what is more important? RAM or graphic card? Here, configurations are stupid, for instance:

a) 4GB RAM, 2x2.1ghz, GF315M
b) 2GB RAM, 1x1.65ghz, Radeon HD6230
c) 4GB RAM, 1x1.85ghz, Intel HD Graphics

I don't mind about HDD. in my laptop i have 80GB, and about 40 free.

Oh, configuration don't need to be for high details. I can play on med, or low. I don't want to buy PC (it can be hard to take it with me at my university if i have few free hours...), and i don't want to buy much expensive laptop fo play only one game on it. It's just because i need new laptop, but it doesn't have to be very advanced.

PS: I am writing here, because there is little mess on Polish board.

take care all,
kavior

It would be the best if you could give us a link to the site, and a price range.

a) 4GB RAM, 2x2.1ghz, GF315M <-- It could work at low settings but 315m is really weak(still better than the other two)

b) 2GB RAM, 1x1.65ghz, Radeon HD6230  <--very weak CPU+GPU probably e-240(AMD Brazos APU) its not meant for playing, really.
c) 4GB RAM, 1x1.85ghz, Intel HD Graphics <--The old "Intel HD grapics" = NO gaming , if its the new Ivy Bridge one then it could be good but i think its the old one.

http://allegro.pl/laptopy-491 and where are fields Cena (zł) - max is 1700, eventually 1900.

then click on Pokaż >

then Sortuj wedug: Cena najwyższa (this one is going to show prices from the highest to the lowest)

I appreciate all help, because since i've got PS3, i am completely green with things like that ;)

greetings

edit:

useful things:
Liczba rdzeni procesora - cores. Jeden - 1, dwa - 2, trzy - 3, cztery - 4, sześć - 6
Karta graficzna - integrated, dedicated, other graphics
but after choosing option, you always have to click Wybierz > on this popup and again Pokaż.

thank you very much for those links. yes, price is good. if you would like to search again, but for price with 1900, maybe you will find better laptops which are worth to spend 200 złotych more (about 40 pounds/40 euro).

thanks again :)

Well the SONY one is a bit old but still awesome, it should run WOT at medium (and most games at medium-high).

If you need it for WOT it is more than enough i think. But i will look at the 1900 ones too.

ok, ty :)

this sony is used one. I always thought that buying used electronic things is quite risky.

now friend visited me - he has hp pavilion g series G6, i3 inside, geforce gt520m cuda 1gb. It should be ok? he spent on in 1800, so not bad. he is not going to be here such a long time to check it.

greetings

ps: actually i have hp notebook, and if every hp notebooks needs disassembling after few months, i don't want hp anymore ;p

It would run WOT at low-medium.

The ASUS one is OK too Laptop ASUS X53TK K53TK A4-3305M 4GB HD7670 HDMI I think this one is new(2 years warraty).

Basically the CPU is slower than the core i3 but the Graphics card is faster.
