As you already know, World of Warcraft also known as WOW is an incredibly addicting and high graphical game. There are countless things to do in this game like dancing, being rude to others, getting married, stalking, raiding, fighting, etc.

The game is addicting as hell, and it's a whole new life for most of the addicted players. Anyways, here in this guide, we will be listing 5 of best gaming laptops for World of Warcraft. For playing such game on a laptop, you will need a decent PC from a reputed manufacturer with a good processor and GPU.

We always recommend purchasing a notebook with better specifications than official requirements since they keep releasing new expansions now and then and you will need a powerful laptop to handle most of their latest expansions.

One should also be aware of the heating issues of a laptop because with games like WOW you never know how long you will be playing and you don't want something that's almost burning on your lap. You should also make sure that your laptop has a decent display with at least 1080p resolution.

Official Requirements for World of Warcraft

If we look at the official requirements for WOW by Blizzard, then their minimum is Intel Core 2 Duo and Intel HD graphics 5000 but to be honest here, you won't be able to play smoothly on low settings with these kinds of specifications.

WoW Laptops

However, their recommended specs are Intel Core i5 processor and NVIDIA GTX 750 Ti. Anyways, since you're here looking for our recommendation, we suggest you get a device with Intel Core i5-6300HQ processor or better and GPU should be NVIDIA GTX 960M or better.

Blizzard releases a new patch every couple of months, and with these kinds of specifications, you won't have to worry for next 2 to 3 years.

Memory also plays a crucial role when it comes to gaming and we suggest you get a laptop with at least 4 GB of RAM and the more is always better. Also to enjoy the game thoroughly, make sure your device remains cool, and we suggest you buy a decent cooling pad for your laptop.
