Hello everyone,i recently got some money and i would like to buy myself a new laptop.

I must say that i do not need a PC,since im a student,so i need laptop only,i dont need advices for a new pc,which can be better with same amount of money etc...

Second thing i must say is that i also live in France,i posed this question on the french forum but they are no use.

My max budget is 650 and i studied a little bit the available laptops at this range and i found this ASUS:




Does any of you guys know how well would run wot on this machine? Also if you have some other options i would be glad to hear them.

Thank you very much and cant wait to hear from you guys.

I have an Acer i5 laptop with 1,8 Ghz with a 750m gpu. WoT runs on medium to high settings (more or less high models and textures, medium postprocessing - dont like the blurish look anyway) with 35-70fps.

Since the laptop you posted has a CPU with a higher takt as well the gpu is also more modern, that should do.

See GPU comparison:



Beware: my laptop das 2 GPUs, and sometimes the nvidia driver gets destroyed by updates, then games do not switch to nvidia but run on the intel chip... wot with 15fps....

Had to reinstall driver multiple times...

Allright,thank you mate. Alot of people(french) told me to forget about playing wot with nice graphs in 600 range. I tend to do not believe them at all.

Thank you again.

Try to avoid using a laptop at all for World of Tanks.


Desktop computers are much better for this task.


If you really have to use a laptop for whatever reason that one you mentioned will probably work. Naturally you will have to lower most graphic settings to get a decent FPS but it should definately be playable.


You will experience problems with laptop getting very hot and also might experience problems with pluging in headset (sometimes headsets don't work well on laptops for some reason).

I know that desktops are made for this task,and they can handle it better,but for my needs,a laptop defines my askings.

Thank you for reponse. :)

PS: I have a pretty good coolpad from CoolerMaster,which i use now and keeps my laptop pretty cool,never gets hot.

if you get a laptop for wot, get something with at least an Intel i5 processor.

Most new laptops work fine to play wot.
My parents got an Acer x501a series and I play wot on it with 35 to 42 fps medium settings and some extra effects etc turned off.
If you buy a laptop with i5 or i7 processor , ssd drive and a good graphics card and good ram it will do the job very good.
I am planning to buy this summer a laptop with at least these parts and a nice 17 inch screen.
My desktop does worst compared to my parents laptop for some reason.
While my desktop has 3ghz processor 3gb ram, 8800gtx etc and on the lowest settings I cant get more then 13fps WTF.
But I am not planning to buy a new laptop but a decent second hand gaming laptop that is quite recent bought by someone.
Actually if you have a budget off 650 I would recommand to wait a little longer to buy a laptop that has better parts or try to find a recent second hand gaming laptop.
Just to keep in mind that you can use it a longer time before its out dated.
I've got a laptop that I used for 10 years and it still works but its a bit out dated now.
A friend has already bought in the time I have mine 3 times a new lower range laptop...

playing full screen medium settings and added some settings to that, fps is 30-47 depend map (cras etc effects) Asus G75VX rhis is good enough for me think many of players do play much lower fps and settings and using desk computers.
