PC advice - coming back from a Mac

Post by Yamutha » Fri May 26, 2017 12:14 am

Well, if anything levelling to 60 has shown me - I need a FULL overhaul. Been playing on my husband's MacBook Pro but it's just not up to even a wee potter around, so it's clearly time for me to get my own gaming machine.
Problem is - I've spent so much time out of the PC world (see what I did there?), I've no idea what is decent any more. Will laptops even last the next upgrade?
If I get this, then hubby can also play obduction - so it's clearly not just me being selfish.
No.
That's definitely not what it's about.

What's everyone using right now and what's on your wish list?

Thanks for the in-game chat and advice! Unfortunately, we probably can't go for a desktop because we'll likely be all over the place in the coming months.
So... laptop it is - just need to get some ear defenders?...

I would take a look at PC Specialist's range of custom laptops and have a tinker with those to see if you can get something that works for your wallet. The key thing to remember with WoW is that it is a very CPU bound game and a decent processor (2.8ghz or faster) will be the priority over the graphics card, although you still want a dedicated graphics card in your machine.
