You don’t exactly need a 5k laptop to play WoW (lowest I ever played it was on a geforce 2 mx to give you an idea). If this is to target WoW players they got it all wrong. Now if this were crysis it’d make sense, but I doubt these specs could even run that hehe maybe.

What a waste of money.

Spend all that money just to waste your life playing a stupid game? I just don’t get it.

It’s not about wasting money. It is a waste to some not all. If you don’t want it stop talking about it. Its about having fun while hanging out with your friends. When you’re with friends you waste money. Think about it and you’ll see I’m right. Wether it be gas money or drinks or whatever. SO STOP DISSING ON THINGS YOU’LL NEVER UNDERSTAND.

Pointless to make a laptop special for WoW, you could, if you search, probablly find a $500 laptop that can play it fine… the graphics on the back are pointless. not to affend anybody but its just displaying that your a WoW geek, not saying its a bad game and all, but its not the kind of thing to show off to your friends.. not to mention the price

There is nothing wrong with WoW, it’s our choice and if we are “wasting our time” playing wow it is none of your business……

umm…i am a wow player, and i would advise just building your own laptop from dell, or another company. you would end up paying less and getting better specs. they’re basing this inflated price on the special wow “stuff” that comes in the box with the laptop i believe…and it’s not even close to being worth the price they stick on it.

I am a wow geek. seriously, geek. But even i would feel a little weird about having huge wow paraphernalia all over my laptop. you know… i think that although some might like it, that a lot of people would agree with me. there’s just something a little “too much” about it. a little too juvenile. yes i know that seems ‘ironic’ because it is built about a fantasy game. but that’s how it comes across to me.

Brandi

On October 29, 2008 at 7:30 pm

oh, and Rick is right. you can Build or buy a better one for less money.

They laptop mind you is cool i agree with the idea that its just a scam and not worth the price gouge they make and i have a little toshiba satellite and payed like 500 dollars and it plays it with excellence good debate ove r the topic tho but the opposing side has won i think and yea there r stupid people in this world that like to comment things they never tried or even know anything about but u have to ignore them and hope they all get rapped and just leave it at that lol hahahahaha!!!!!! ……………..

Diana Moneymaker.. you talk about us wasting our life playing a “stupid” game, but the way I see it.. you just wasted a few minutes of your life reading an article you had no interest in and then another minute bashing the computer, the game, and the people that play this game. That’s quite pathetic too, imo. And I’d have to say you’re even quite ignorant to even bash something you know nothing of in the first place. Everyone likes doing different things. We just so happen to enjoy this game. It’s not just about playing a fantasy game.. you actually meet some really great people in this game, too. And it’s a lot cheaper than going out to bars all the time or bowling or whatever you like to do. I’m not bashing those things by any means, but my point is that those things cost money too. So, while some of us may buy an expensive laptop like this and pay $15 a month to play the game.. you could spend hundreds of dollars a month doing the things you enjoy doing. So, it all kind of works out. But anyway, might want to think next time before you go making yourself look like a jack@ss.
