Blizzard Entertainment developed a world popular multiplayer online role-playing computer game called World of Warcraft, most commonly referred to as WoW, and ever since its release in 2004, the game developed so much that nowadays it is requesting a powerful machine to play on. Here we are going to represent to you the best 10 laptops on which you can play this popular computer game.
Before we start, we want to tell you what does each WoW extension is requiring, like Classic WoW, for example. For Classic WoW which came out in 2004, you need a PC with either Windows Vista Operating System or a Windows XP. If you are a Mac user, then Mac Operating System X 10.4.11 or something that most recently came out. The processor should be Dual-core, like Intel Pentium D or AMD Athlon 64 X2, for PC users. For Mac, intel 1.8GHz or something better is quite suitable. You should at least have 1GB RAM, or 2GB for Vista on your personal computer, and for Mac 2GB RAM. When it comes to video, PC users should have a 3D graphics processor that has Vertex and Pixel Shader, including 128 MB VRAM like ATI Radeon X1600. If you don’t have that, NVIDIA GeForce GT class card should suffice, of something better from NVIDIA graphics cards. That is meant for both PC and Mac users.
Battle for Azeroth came out in 2018, and given the fact that 12 years have passed since the Classic WoW first came out, you will need a more powerful machine to operate on. For this game, on PC you should have a Widnows® 10 64-bit, and for Mac macOS® 10.13 that is the most recent version. On OC you will need Intel® Core™ i&-4770 or AMD FX™-8310 at least. For Mac, Intel® Core i7-4770 or something more powerful. Memory should at least be 8GB RAM for both PC and Mac, and the video should possess NVIDIA® GeForce® GTX 960 4GB or AMD™ Radeon™ R9 280 at least. Mac needs AMD Radeon™ R9 M395X or something better, and 4GB VRAM Metal GPU.

1. Acer Predator Helios 300
There are more than 300 nits of brightness, and 144Hz is more than enough for your gaming experience. There is a GTX 10 60 and 80 750 H that provides you FPS that you require, and you can play from 1080p and higher. It is not heavy, as it weighs 5 pounds and 9 ounces, and that is equal to 2.52 kg. Brushed aluminum on the LCD panel with red colors is just too attractive, and there is also a brushed aluminum keyboard chassis that has red LED backlit keyboard is just fantastic, and it uses Microsoft touchpad.
There is a plastic coverage at the end of the laptop that included two empty spaces intended for hard drive and RAM. Intel Core i7-8750 H is operating at 2.2 GHz, and for Mac, it operates on an amazing 4.1 GHz. NVIDIA GTX 1066 G and 16 G DDR 2666MHz are mixed in this laptop, and you can change that to HD 630. 256 Intel and VMe SSD with LCD screen of 15.6 inches are just fantastic. The only downside of this laptop is its loud fans and the lack of sound.
2. MSI GS65 Stealth 144Hz 7ms Ultra-thin
MSI has always tried their best to come up with a nice designed machine that can operate many things, especially to provide an amazing gaming experience.

There is also a long-lasting battery, and the game-centering software features are just perfect for WoW. It has a 15.6-inch screen with anti-glare wide view angle, and it runs on 144Hz 7ms 72% NTSC. The processor is as we said Core i7-8750H Hexa-Core with a frequency that goes from 2.2 to 4.1GHz. NVIDIA GeForce GTX1070 8G GDDR5 graphics card works wonders, and the only bad thing about this gaming laptop is that it doesn’t have that much memory space.

There is a mechanical-level protection solution on this MSI gaming laptop, and this one comes with a little bit of more memory storage, 128GB SSD, and 1TB HDD.

WoW can be played on a resolution of up to 1920 x 1080, and it is considered a great value for money that you pay for this gaming laptop. The downside is that the fan’s noise can make you a little stressed out, as it is a bit louder than usual, and the battery life is not as lasting as it should be, and that makes this laptop not as portable as maybe some other gaming laptops on our list are.
4. ASUS FX503VM Full HD
ASUS is also a good company that creates some very powerful machines, and this FX503 model is no different. It has Intel Core i7-770 HQ Kaby Lake processor that includes GeForce GTX 1050 GPU and 4GB VRAM. The 8GB DDR4 RAM can be expanded to 32GB, and 128GB SSD is amazing for your gaming experience because it is also packed with 1TB Hard disk drive. We can talk endlessly about this laptop, but in our opinion, there are no downsizes when it comes to this laptop, and this model could easily be the perfect solution for WoW players.

It comes with an 8GB RAM and anti-glare screen. It is packed with 7th Generation Intel Core i7+7700 HW with 2.8GHz that can go up to 3.8GHz. 4GB GDDR5 VRAM NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050Ti graphics card is making your WoW experience amazing, and 17.3-inch display is giving you pleasure, as you can see even the smallest details of the game that may be of importance. Again, the battery is something some of the laptops are not taking into consideration, and this gamin laptop is also lacking in the battery life department.

Another ASUS design, we can say that this one is created for WoW Battel of Azeroth, t has 120Hz screen for a good price, and this gaming laptop includes Intel Core i7-8750H processor, as well as NVIDIA GTX 1060 graphics card.
