How well will this laptop do?
Posted 23 January 2013 - 05:32 AM
-Intel Core i5-3210M 2.5GHz
-2gb NVIDIA Geforce GT 645M
-1366 x 768
I havn't really seen any 645m's mentioned anywhere so I'm a bit curious.

If you want to check if your computer will run GW2, check here.
If you find out you can't and need to think about upgrading or building another, check here.

Its a mid-range laptop card, probably OEM-only for laptops so you don't hear about it anywhere else. As Comfy said, it should run the game pretty well at such a low resolution. I imagine you could do better than 30-35 FPS if you're gentle with the shadows/reflections/etc.
Fortunately for laptop owners, GW2 is a lot more sensitive to CPU performance which is relatively easy to find in an affordable modern laptop.

I've had the exact opposite experience. Canned air every few months does wonders for removing dust from the system. MSI usually has adequate cooling.
Just so people don't get the wrong idea, I am not against the use of a cooling pad, it is a nice way to get lower temps. however, unless there is a flaw in the design of the laptop (which does sometimes happen), it is not a necessity even when using a laptop at 100% CPU and GPU.

If you haven't done so, I'd update it and remove any bloatware before launching GW2. Oh and update your nVidia drivers: http://www.nvidia.co...ql-driver.html.
If it's your first Windows computer, Windows Defender in Windows 8 is actually Microsoft Security Essentials. Why they didn't just call it Security Essentials still baffles me.
