Laptop For FPWW

Postby BWest246 » Mon Jun 11, 2018 3:25 am

So I am in the need for a new laptop because my old one will not play Fire Pro. My old laptop is about 9 years old and the processor is just way too slow. I was wondering if some of you guys could give me some links to Laptops that are in the $300-$400 range that would play FPWW seamlessly. I don’t want to buy a new laptop and it not be able to play this game. I have looked at the specs for this game and all the laptops I see with the i5 processor are over $500. I don’t want to spend that much. I appreciate any help you guys can give me.

Look for stuff that's maybe refurbished or older models.

Intel has been using 'i5' as a model designation for like 9 generations at this point, and Spike never really specified a clock speed or specific model. Look for something with at least 4 gigs of ram (8 preferably).

I found this looking at Newegg's 'outlet' website:

That should do just fine.

My PC was top-of-the-line five years ago and it's using an early gen i5 (i5-4690K @ 3.50GHz) and it runs the game fine.

There's some slowdown here-and-there, but that's largely due to the amount of mods and edits I have.

My laptop is an i3 with 8gb ram and an integrated graphics card. Got it from Walmart.com for about 350. Runs firepro just fine, even with mods.

I will say that the required specs they give are generous. My laptop is probably 6-7 years old and just under on most of the specs and it runs FPW without much issue, although it does get a bit hot. I added some RAM (went from 4GB to 8) and it helped a fair bit. So if you're looking at something that's just a little bit under, you'll more than likely be fine.
Also slightly there's something happy, so enjoy it!

i5 is nowhere near what is required. I used a 2.5gHz Core 2 and the game run fine, except for the wrestler selection screen for whatever reason run slow as fuck. In match was perfectly fine.
