I'm in the market for a gaming laptop. I've never bought one before and don't know a whole lot about them compared to a normal desktop.
My budget is up to $1500, can push maybe to 2k if needed it will make a huge difference.
The main games I will be playing are World of Warcraft TBC Classic and the latest Football Manager. I also have quite a backlog of other games I want to play like the Witcher 3 (but if games that intense blow the budget out then I'll have to settle not playing them).
WoW Classic will be my main game by far. I understand it's not too intensive but I'd like to play on max settings if possible with a lot of add-ons. With that in mind I think the thing I should prioritize the most is the display. I also can have really long sessions on occasion (plugged in on charge though) so cooling or something very resistant to overheating is important.
I can't think of any more relevant things but if I've left some big things out just let me know. I'm in Melbourne's West if that helps with stores but I'm guessing most things will be online.
