Living in norway so can't use newegg:/ heard l needed i7, and min. 10 gb ram to run 5 ma smoothly. Thanks for any helpful links.

    If you're looking to 5-box on a laptop, it's going to need to be powerful. Powerful + Laptop = Expensive

    Powerful gaming laptops run pretty damn warm and their battery life is going to suck if you're doing anything that brings the video card out of sleep mode and you're not plugged into the wall. Add an SSD on top of that and the price just went up. I don't know any Norwegian PC sites, but you're probably looking for something like this:

    Guess its considering what is expensive. I have the two year old version of this >. http://www.excaliberpc.com/616328/as...-notebook.html . i paid 1200usa for mine and it runs 5 WoWs very smooth with the main turned up to high settings. The one i linked has newer tech and im sure would run 5 WoWs very smooth.

    But yea.. battery life is a joke for gaming..hell even surfing the web.. i bring my power cord when i travel.. i cant even get through a full length movie on the battery alone.

    Got a message about a norwegian link : http://www.netonnet.no/art/data/lapt...g/170464.3004/

    It will cost 2210$, will this serve my needs? Anyone have any saying about this one.

    I'm no expert with laptops, but that looks like it'll do what you want it to. That 128GB SSD has plenty of space for both your OS and the game folder. Remember, this sucker is going to run pretty warm, especially because it's an Ivy Bridge CPU, and you'll want to make sure that you're not choking out its airflow by setting it directly on your lap, blankets on your bed, or something like that.
