I am torn between to laptops. One is this

The other is this

  My question is does WoT generally focus how good is your CPU or GPU.

Both are old designs, so it's a moot point.  My intel 4000 integrated can run WoT on low/med settings OK.  But you'd want more graphics based stuff, as all of the CPU-heavy stuff takes place serverside.  What's your budget, I might be able to help.

Go with the first one. AMD CPU's are weaker per core, and since the game is single-threaded, Intel's per-core performance will give you an advantage. Also at least on mobile, AMD's GPU performance advantage is negligible unless your'e going for an A10 or something.

far as I no its still only supporting single core, not more than that , so cpu power is low priority at a guess.

as for gpu, have a friend, running a high end card, and hes still getting low frame rates depending on the map , ensk is the worst one at the moment, to kick in lower fps .
hes running a I 7 chip on a radeon high end card, yet still gets games that just drop his fps for 0 reason , due to the last patch failure on the issue they had with it .
so I guess in time , they might increase things for the game to get better support, but at the other end I guessing they basing things on machines they running over the Russian side.
with a game that they giving laptops and lower end machines a chance to do well on , I don't think high spec machines will get love any time soon as it would give you the speed advantage in battle.
run a i7 chip, with a high end card , and a solid state hard drive, gives you that vital few parts of a second that would enable you to get what I guess they would see as an unfair advantage over other players on lower end machines.
so there limiting the speed of every one to give lower end users as much chance as others .
you can make it look prettier, but it wont give you any other benefits .

  My question is does WoT generally focus how good is your CPU or GPU.

Both are discontinued from that webpage, That said if you plan to game avoid intel HD graphics they are total garbage, An A8 or A10 AMD cpu will run circles around then if you do not have a dedicated videocard, If you do get a dedicated videocard however intel>amd, i own this laptop http://www.newegg.co...N82E16834101259 and i get 30-40 FPS on high and 50-60 on medium if i turn off shadows and water detail.

As to your question, It favors CPU to a point then it starts to offload onto the GPU for how pretty the game is so if you are looking at laptops and are ONLY going to play this game don't get anything less then an I3 + dedicated videocard of any type or an A8 or A10 apu, If you plan to play other games then nothing less then an A8 or A10, or an I5 + dedicated video card of a higher end style I.E 7650M+

If you need help give me your price range and i can give you several links to laptops that will be the best for that overall price range.

WoT is much more CPU dependent rather than a GPU side. I run two 660ti 3gb FTW editions in SLI and I can barely scrape a 60+ fps on max settings because my I7-950 3.08ghz cant keep up with my two cards running.

A8 or A10 have a good advantage over Intel's solution. However, you're looking at an A6, so go with the Intel one.

Just curious is there any reason you want a laptop over a desktop? I ask cause for the same price desk tops are better quality, as in higher specs. You could get a desktop better able to run the game for the same price.

i m running a 1090T amd 6 core overclocked on air to 4.1ghz with a single HD7970 videocard , everything on maxed including AA - i get from 70-127 fps constant

I am doing a auction for them. Unfortunately I have to give you guys newegg links for the laptops instead of the auction page because you know....But I will dig up the links for several more right now
EDIT  Links delayed till later this after around 5-7pm

If I had to chose between those 2 options, I'd favor the faster intel processor over the AMD.  Higher end graphics cards tend to be bottlenecked by the CPU in this game.  I'm less sure about what happens with lower end, integrated graphics, but I suspect that the video options, here, are fairly close; so, I'd let the processing edge win the day.

And for what this is worth (since it doesn't include actual benchmarks).

How about save your money. Buy a used gaming computer on eBay or craigslist or something.

I built a desktop a few months ago for this game.  I spent more money on the graphics card then I did the CPU.  If I turn interlacing off (which pulls your FPS down to 60 to match your monitor) I get over 100 FPS with every graphics mode at maximum.

Graphics IMHO is the most important thing to have right.  Before I built my desktop I ran on a i7 laptop and could not get better than 30 FPS and would drop to less then 10 when zoomed in through a bush.
