I'm in a pinch. I need to buy myself a laptop and i still want to be able to play WoT on it, although i'm not dreaming on playing at high resolution. I'm ok with medium settings.

I was curious if it's possible to play on medium on this laptop

Laptop HP ProBook 455 G1 cu procesor AMD Quad-Core A10-5750M 2.5GHz, 8GB, 500GB, AMD Radeon HD 8750M 2GB

If you're not set on which laptop to buy yet, check out http://www.notebookcheck.com/. They have tests focused on gaming, which might give you some hints.

 

If you have lots of money left over, try http://www.mysn.de. Good solid gamer laptops, but not really cheap. Otherwise check if you find your laptop among the tests from notebookcheck and see what score it has.

I am playing on a laptop, a Dell 5110 with following specs:

Intel® Core™ i7-2670QM, 8GB DDR3 1333Mhz, NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M – 1GB

and my main issue with it is heating up, I am using a Zalman cooler pad and changed but still I have issues with the FPS being at 80-100 and in 1 sec going down at 15-20 due to this. I am playing with all settings at minimum.

 

So if a laptop is mandatory and you cant buy a desktop instead I would suggest doing some research on how much it will heat up or if you can put an auxiliary cooling system to keep it cool, it is possible on some laptops not all.

yeah it might look good on paper the specs but when is in full game mod and it heats up the FPS will suffer.

Just one aspect you could look into.

My XMG 502 has no heat problem, but two of my previous laptops from IBM and ASUS suffered from overheating. They were just not designed to handle heat levels like that. My XMG on the other hand has a nice big heat sink and two separate fans inside, thus it's a bit heavier than a usual laptop that size.

 

That's something you really need to keep in mind when looking for a gaming laptop. Some of the bigger companies just slap a capable gfx card inside, without regards to heat or noice level, and sell it as a "gamer" laptop.
