That's it. Just wanted to brag. :P

Actually I also wanted to ask:

I mostly play on my desktop (upgrade overdue and imminent) and the new laptop could easily match it for graphics power (for now), so I might be tempted to play WoT on the laptop too.

Will my dossier file get split across the 2 machines so that my desktop contains the majority of my stats and the laptop contain the rest?

Or do both machines get a full blown copy of all my stats?

Not gameplay related in the slightest. Moving to off-topic

What dossier file? Your stats are stored on the server.

WoT places a full copy of your stats on every pc.
Everything else would be kinda useless.

whole thing on both, but to update the dossier you must launch the client every so often or the information on the dossier becomes outdated but you probably already knew that

You get the full blown copy for both I think, I've deleted the file and got it back full next time I played.

EDIT: Fear the ninjas, there is always more then 1.

Well considering that the overall stats and etc (I use WoT Statistics) came up w/o me needing to play a bunch and only the recent battles needed to be recorded then no?  I'm not sure but I don't think so.

I play on an old and terrible laptop and the only problem I have is the terrible FPS.

I get 30-60 FPS on mine (dependant on tree level), it's 2 years old and it's not a gaming one either.

Played my entire WoT careér on a laptop and I don't feel that it have put me in a worse position than everyone else. I recently got an new laptop and it's running WoT at 40-80 FPS on high while my old one ran at 25-60 FPS depending on the map (Ensk anyone?)

None of these laptops are branded gaming PCs as I've got a limited budget but that doesn't mean you have to get bad preformance. Both cost 6000 skr (~€700) which seem to be the sweetspot for "gaming-but-not-gaming" laptops. Pay less and you're stuck with a weak CPU or/and integrated graphics, pay more... and you might just as well get a desktop instead as (right now at least) the laptops in the €800-1500 range seem to use the same hardware as those at 700. The "gaming" laptops are in the €1500+ price range and at that price you are better off building your own rig with far superior stats.

So what exactly did I pay €700 for?
Standard 15.6 inch screen
Full size keyboard w/ numpad
Handfull of USB 3.0 ports
i7 3610QM 4 cores, 2.3/3.3 gHz
8 gB RAM @1600 mHz
ATI Radeon 7670m (Your dedicated gaming rig beats it? Facinating, tell me more that I don't know)
2 gB vRAM
Irrelevant sound card (one of the few perks of being deaf)
And last: a craptacular-but-does-it's-job 500 gB HHD @5400 RpM
^Any dedicated gaming desktop beats it by a mile, but not at that price.

(P.S. No, it doesn't overheat)

Mine will have i5 3230M processor, 6Gb RAM and a HD 7730M. £499.

I'm hoping for 30FPS on medium.

28nm build tech means new laptops consume less power, run less hot and can compete with the older model desktops that I suspect most WoT players are rattling along with.

I doubt if everyone here has a £2000 water cooled i7 16 GB GTX690 lurking under their battered desks.
