laptops nowadays are strong enough to play those games with ease....

but dont forget...
you as a college student... might want to be flexible in time and place... so a portable one would be more handy... .;;


me personally also wants to by a laptop (every laptop available cant be worse than my pc =_= )
but i will still keep my old big pc... so that my mom will be able to play mahjong on it while me sitting at the pc at the same time =3
and i might use the old as for somewhat as a base for storing stuff... if there is enough place =_=

The major disadvantage in laptops is that you cannot update it's hardware. If you are ok with that, buy a laptop.

maybe... if i decide to study.... or get my apprenticeship or whatever... my parnts might buy me one or suppoort me with a bit of money...
though it really looks bad for me... -.-
the flat owner is going to throw us out ;_; after 13 years ;_;

I've been using the same laptop since I started college, and I am now a Junior. My computer has been great for what I've needed to do. The only real problem I've had is wanting to play new games on it, my laptop isn't strong enough for it or has the min specs.

I've been considering buying a new laptop since they now have greater specs than they did 2 years ago.

I see many laptops now with at least 1 gig of ram and 120 gig of hard drive space, my laptop has 512 mb ram and only 50 gig of hard drive space.

I will buy a new computer soon I think because mostly I want to be able to play the game I want on my computer.

If your just using your computer for school almost anything will do really since you can't do anything that memory intensive on a computer unless your a studying something like movie making.

Desktops are generally cheaper and have better specs than laptops but laptops are pretty easy to move around.

Since you mentioned you want to be able to play WOW and GW I recommend getting a desktop because games are usually made with the chips designed for desktops in mind, laptop chips may work fine for the game but they won't always be of the caliber of those desktop ones unless you buy one of the newest laptops out then your laptop would be on par to a desktop.

Just check out the specs for those games and plan your purchase accordingly.




All right i feel like a idiot for posting all that without reading the previous posts. It sounds like you made a good choice though.
