Hello fellow tankdrivers!

I have a question. I really enjoy this game, but when it comes to the setup of computers and laptops im a bit of a noob. So my question here is:
What would be a nice laptop to play World of Tanks on. Now i heard that WoT doesnt support multi-core processors, so a high clockspeed would be good since it had to get all the power from the one core.
But what pricerange would i have to be thinking about, in kind of the budget category, because obviously i can buy a 2000 euro laptop which can do quite nicely, but then I wouldn't have to make this thread... And the graphics dont have to be ubermax or anything, but like just high graphics would be nice.

Thanks in advance :)

(And please don't tell me that I should not play WoT on a laptop, because i pretty much dont have any other option, so dont make those comments)

i play on laptop...

what u should aim?

something like i5 + some standalone ati GPU... ( asus maybe, or lenovo... ) for cca 1000€ u can buy nice machine... also, for same amount of money, u can buy 50% stronger tower PC...

edit : if u want to play on lap only, aim at least on 17,3" screen...

i play on asus n71ja ( old one, but working, i3 + 5730 ati... )

Well you will definitely need to get a laptop with a dedicated graphics card. I tried running it on an i3 laptop with on-chip Intel HD3000 graphics and it was struggling to run even on low settings.
Other than that just get the best processor you can afford. Something like an i5 processor, nVidia GTX 660M or similar and 4 gigs of RAM will do nicely.

I run on a Toshiba Satellite L850-1FF which I bought for 700 euros, it runs wot at 50-80 FPS on medium settings with models + textures + rendering distance on max (it would run max settings quiet nicely but I prefer high/stable FPS over E-peen graphics settings).

i7 3610QM 2.3 - 3.2 ghz, 4 cores
8 gb RAM @  1600 mhz
AMD Radeon HD 7670m 2gb Vram
500 gb hdd @ 5200 RpM
15.6 inch screen

It's not the strongest nor best built laptop out there but you get decent hardware for your money.

Found a review, they seemed moderately impressed but the users seems to like it: http://tech2.in.com/...0-review/318732
EDIT: The reviewed laptop had a larger HDD but less/slower ram than mine but the rest is the same

For such money You can get really powerfull machine - Even some monster from Alienware, if im not wrong. However, if You just want to play WoT comfortable, i can recommend You Lenovo Y580 - Its much cheaper than Your budget, but it will allow You to play with atleast 40 fps with everything at max details. I know because im using same laptop. If You dont want to save money, buy some beast with i7, full HD display, and even stronger graphic card. You can wait for new Geforces from 7xx M series as well. Cheers :)

I currently use the Alien M17x R4

If you look around on ebay there are a fair number of Dell distributors who are selling these quite cheap - around £1300 (boxed as new M17x R4's). And the specs of those laptops are quite nice, especially for the money asked!

GPu being the GTX 660, cpu usually the 3630gm just for your info.

I would imagine that there will be more choice now as the new Alien range has been released - I did ask when this was happening 4 weeks back, but even Dell did not know (yeah right dell)

Anyway - happy hunting


Edit - my Alien M14x R1 is looking for a new home now! But, as above, I would recommend at least 17 inch screen tbh

2nd edit - lol - i was indicating settings on max btw! - thx for the minus points as it is not like I know having played this game on a few laptops with Alien kicking the shyte out of all of them!

BTW: WoT is pretty CPU intensive while sparing the GPU. A good processor is more important than a good graphics card.

My daughter has Dell Studio i5 laptop, think its the Inspiron 15R. Plays WoT on low settings, looks a big cartoonish but certainly very playable. £519 or €599.

At around 800 to 1000 $ you should get a really nice machine.I for one play the game from a laptop too , and I use the Asus N56.My aunt made a gift for me and it is more than enough for this game

It has: Intel I7 3630 3.4 Ghz
   8 Gb or RAM(overkill but I don't complain:))
   2 GPUs(one integrated a HD 4000 and a Nvidia GT 650m dedicated GPU)
   1 TB of hard disk space
And a 15.3 inch Full HD screen.

It works very well with this game and it will run at 60+ FPS with your prefered settings.

But at a budget I say that you can find Dells or Lenovos at around 600$ that fit the bill.

I also recomend an Nvidia graphics card...hopefully 550M at least...

Probably more than 4 gigs of memory.

Most "gaming laptops" would probably do the trick also but they are in a totally different price category unfortunately...

Stay away from anything AMD if you wanna play WoT...

I plays happily on my Core 2 duo ULV 1.6 ghz with Nvidia GT335M AKA the Alienware M11X R1

I have tweaked my OS and run an SSD also however.

Toshiba L770 11F
4GB ram
Nvidia GeForce

and until recently I played solely using the touchpad

That set me back ~£450, but it plays WoT fine, I think £400 + is about the price range you're looking at

World of tanks doesn't have multi core cpu support... so if u have an i 7 3.2 Ghz or a pentium 4 3.2 Ghz is basically the same.... spend more money on gpu (video card) than on cpu... And make sure to have at least 4 GB ram

If you have a Clevo reseller in your country, I would recommend taking a look at those. they are MUCH cheaper than the overpriced Alienware laptops with the same specs.

I play WoT on a Clevo P150 EM, which I've had for 7 months now.

Every single shop is cheaper than alienware, even the more expensive ones. Alienware is horribly overpriced.
