Hey,

I'm looking for a laptop that can run the game on high settings.
The main issue is the graphics card I guess ,any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Alienware it might be spelled wrong.

Ive heard Alienware IS great, but that it is more expensive than it should be because it is a Brand product. Kind of like Calvin Klein underwear is super expensive soley for its label. There are other laptops better if not the same as Alienware, without you having to pay $200 extra dollars for a brand item.

i run a Toshiba Qosmio,  while im not running on high settings i dont have the top of the line model i get about 40-50 fps on medium settings.  i would assume (and yes assumption is the mother of all %^ckups)  the big brother would handle high settings without an issue.

You could try get a better graphics card if tahts the problem.
A while back  a company which sold graphics card had a deal and if you bought (i think) their $80 graphics card you got $20 worth of gold in WoT or your choice of game.
I cant remember what the website was but if you go back and look at the previous news you might find it on the Wot tanks news.

I got a Lenovo laptop recently, and it works really well. It also seems as if they put them on sale for holidays as well (I saved over $500 on mine because of their St. Patrick's Day sale). The one I got has 8 gigs of RAM, an i7 processor, and a 2gb graphics card. I got it for about $1,000, including a 3 year warranty.

A laptop that can run this game on high settings will be upwards of $1000.

You could try Origin, if you're willing to pay their price.

If you like buying overpriced, buy an alienware.

I wouldn't suggest a laptop for gaming, op. You'll get much more bang for your buck with a desktop.

This website is the best in terms of customer service, community and price. http://www.digitalstormonline.com/ I've gotten my monster rigs from them (5k+) and I've never had a single issue yet.

I would advise against DELL (including Alienware).  DELL is crappy quality.  The laptops that will run this game on "High" will probably cost you about a Grand.  Personally, I'd go with HP, Toshiba (Someone mentioned the Quosimo.  It's a very good laptop), or Samsung, but it's really up to you.  I've heard Asus, Acer, and MSI are good as well.

You can plug in a mouse or, better yet, a controller.
