Hey I need to know if this will be able to run Guild Wars 2 on at least medium settings:

I'm looking for a new laptop and would like to play this game.
If this isn't going to work, can you suggest one at about that same price (or cheaper) that will?
Thanks! ^_^

I don't have time to look around for laptop models, but to answer your question: nope. Look for something with at least a GT630m with a 1366x768 resolution if you want medium. That laptop looks seriously overpriced to me: last gen CPU, weak GPU, standard 1366x768 resolution for 800$. The fact that it has a blu-ray drive doesn't justify that price imo.

EDIT: Saw this on TD: http://www.tigerdire...46447&csid=_61. For 20$ more, you get something that actually packs some decent hardware.

Even this:

would be better. It swaps the Blu-Ray for a better video chip and a larger display.

That Y580 is pretty bang for the buck as far as gaming is concerned and has decent build quality. It's not at the level of a thinkpad, but you won't get a GTX660M in a Thinkpad.
