Tablets for World of Warcraft.

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

I'm really naive with this, so please be subtle.:) I'm going interstate and they're will be periods of boredom. I'm just wondering if there are any tablets second hand, say two years old that would be able to support WOW via wifi. Don't want to spend too much money as it's very likely I'll never use it again. Maybe just for web surfing. Or a small Laptop thats reasonably powerful. Cheers all.

I'm not well informed on tablets, but the Microsoft Surface Pro's? That's the only thing I can think might manage WoW.

 

 

Here are the World of Warcraft system requirements (minimum)
  • CPU: Intel® Core™ 2 Duo E8500 or AMD Phenom™ II X3 720.
  • OS: Windows® 7 / Windows® 8 / Windows® 10.
  • VIDEO CARD: NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 440 or AMD™ Radeon™ HD 5670 or Intel® HD Graphics 5000.
  • FREE DISK SPACE: 45 GB.

Those specs would be running at low res and low graphics settings, still choppy? i couldn't be sure. So look for those equivalents specs in each area or preferably better.

 

Unfortunately the Surface Pros are not in the cheaper options where tables are concerned.

Thanks mate. I might have to give WOW a miss and just Surf the internet or watch Utube. Looking at under $300.

@Wimbo After a google it appears you would even need to be selective with a Surface Pro even if the specs were up to it, as it needs a full version of the Windows OS and some came with a stripped down version (RT?)

I didn't realise anybody still played Wow. I used to love it but it would have to be close to 10 years ago.

@Muon N' Just got a Lenova Yoga off Graysonline for $39 plus the bullshit expenses. This will do the trick mate. Might even see if later on I can hang a DAC off it.:lol:

Will be fine for Utube and Surfing.
