I'm considering buying a Dell xps 15 for $1400 with the following build:

CPU: Options between i7 2620 QM and i7 2720 QM... I chose i7 2720 QM which is 2.2ghz with 3.3ghz turbo boost. There's also availability of i5 2520M 2.5ghz with 3.2ghz turbo boost.
Memory: 6gb ddr3 @ 1333mhz
GPU: NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 540M 2gb
HD: 750gb
Display: 1366x768 or 1920x 1080?


Can I run WoW on this computer @ 60 fps in a 25 man raid? My guild does hard mode raiding (we're 13/13 with current hardmodes, just waiting for 4.2 to roll out.. just chilling on the PTR) and I can't get more than 20 fps on my current laptop.

I am hoping to play on ultra settings. Should I pick the full HD display or the one that's 1366x768?

My friend has an alienware but that cost him like 2.5k dollars. I don't want to spend that much money lol. He's getting 60 fps locked in 25m @ everything on ultra and 8x AA.

Pls help!

You're going to have to spend A LOT of money to get a laptop that will play WoW at max. A desktop would cost half as much or less for the same performance.
