I dusted off my old laptop to see if I could play GW2, because I would like to get in on the fun.
Heading to the systemrequirements.com site made me happy because everything is way in the green, thing is, the processor speed there is empty. My CPU is 2.2 Ghz, listing on the GW2 site has the minimum CPU speed on 2.0 Ghz. So a minimal yay.
How much would this effect. well, basically everything? I wouldn't like playing on low settings.
Can't post my current specs cause I'm writing this on my GF's Imac, but everything else passed the test pretty well it seemed.
