  1. Hi Guys

    I want to buy a new laptop and I would like your opinion about it
    Intel Core i5-3230M 2.6 GHz (3.2 with turbo)
    6 GB Ram
    NVIDIA GeForce GT 610M (2GB)
    Serial ATA 500 GB

    Is this laptop able to run games like League of legends and World of Warcraft?
    If not, please tell me what should be better

    Greetings Rick

    Sure, on Ultra Low.

    That graphics card sucks. If you want to do any decent gaming, you're gonna need a GT 640M or higher.

    Also, the RAM isn't proper dual-channel, and the CPU is a dual-core.

    He doesnt really need a quadcore CPU anyways since LoL and WoW have engines that take advantage of more cores (or it doesnt effectively utilize them). If the laptop is thin, the memory wont be dual channel since there will only be 1 RAM slot (on some ultrabooks). I agree with Stick on the graphics card.

    What is your price range Rick?
