Another will -blank- run FFXIV sorry :(Follow

So I've spent years (since about six months after FFXI release) lurking the Zam site and I haven't really posted much but I am very excited about the release of XIV. Anyways, I want to know if this laptop will run it sufficiently. I'm not looking for perfection, I just want it run relatively good. So he is what I chosen because of the price and specs (which I'm not an expert by anymeans but I've researched the different parts and looked at other posts) and I believe its a good choice. I suppose I am basically looking for a "yes, this will work just fine" or "no! that one sucks, look at such and such". Thank you in advance for any helpful responses.


Here it is..

This exact laptop has come up numerous times over the last month or so...and the general answer is yes, it will work fine. Somewhere in the avg to upper avg range in game play.

I actually had this laptop ordered...but came to my senses and bought a desktop. The fear of not being able to upgrade made the decision for me. :)

Mobility 5870 is basically the top of the line for laptop integrated video, and it's got a pretty decent mobile i7, so yeah, you should be as good as most any laptop can be. ^^

My MacBook Pro 13" (Intel C2Duo 2.4GHz, geforce 320m gfx 256mb) runs the game on medium graphics and it runs it with no lag.

That laptop will be perfectly fine :-)

It will run it for about 6 months until it overheats :P modern games and laptops never mix
