    I am interested in coming back to the game and was curious if a laptop for around $500 would work well for it.

    Something like one of the following:

    Lenovo IdeaPad S400 (59385916) Intel Core i3 3217U(1.80GHz) 4GB Memory 500GB HDD
    TOSHIBA Satellite L55D-A5349 AMD A-Series A8-5545M(1.70GHz) 6GB Memory 750GB HDD
    SONY VAIO F Series SVF15412CXB AMD A-Series A8-5545M(1.70GHz) 4GB Memory 750GB HDD

    When I played last, I was primarily focused on PVP and participated in large 25+ person fights. I would hope to do the same, assuming people are still playing like that. Would the above machines work well in this situation? I know my old machine would suffer with 20 different mage fields/walls and people on the screen. And I would prefer to have no system lag at all.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    I use an Intel i5 with 8gb RAM, and dedicated 1gb ATI GPU (DELL N4050) seems to be fine for the game. I think internet connection is more important though than actual machine you are using.

    Thanks for replying. I used to play on a older laptop and it could not handle more than a few people on screen at any given time. My connection was fine at the time, so I just want to make sure I do not have the same problem again.
