Your laptop/notebook benchmark score or experienceFollow

I didn't see a thread with specifics.

I briefly had:

ASUS G74Sx laptop with i7 quad core something 2Ghz 6MB L3 cache 8GB RAM Nvidia GTX 560M with 128-bit bus 2GB dedicated ram and 1600x900 screen.

It's benchmark score was 3662 with latest Nvidia drivers at 1280x720. The result seemed to match what the benchmark says to expect. First I tried with max settings and it took an hour to log out. I ended up running at 1280x720 with everything default except 2xAA. It was really a very nice playing experience, more than acceptable, but the screen had low resolution, terrible viewing angles and poor color gamut and the laptop had a weird feeling chicklet keyboard, so I returned it.

So, this isn't a "what laptop can run the game" thread. What laptop CPU/GPU do you have experience running the game with. What settings are you using? What's your benchmark score (if you want to run that)?

I've read comments that the benchmark doesn't mean much, but because I've run it, it gives me a sense of what the score means.

I know that faster is faster than slow and that spending more money can mean something faster.

My benchmark score barely hit 1000 and I can still run it fine. The benchmark is very misleading. Have a fairly recent graphics card, nothing integrated and you should be okay.

By the way, I should mention that I've only been in low population areas playing solo as level 3 conjurer I think
