    Will Dota 2 run on this laptop?

    Hi, my old laptop broke and I'm planning on buying a cheap new one, but I'm not sure if Dota 2 will run on it.
    This is the link to the laptop :
    http://www.samsung.com/nz/consumer/p...NP300E5A-A09AU
    I don't mind turning all the graphics settings off to the lowest, as long as render quality is at 100%. Please help!

    It will run, but not that well. You'll probably need at least a small dedicated graphics card or an AMD APU to run Dota 2 properly on a laptop.

    This would definitely run it for e.g. http://www.samsung.com/nz/consumer/p...NP530U4B-S01AU

    I play Dota 2 with a similar laptop in terms of specs and I get 10-18 fps depending if there's a lot of action at the time. Doable, but sometimes it gets frustrating. I have all things at low or off and 100% render quality. Because playing without 100% render quality is well, you know.

    I play on a thinkpad with minimum render quality.

    I played dota2 on a laptop a bit similar, but a bit stronger (had a Radeon HD 6310, dual-core processor). Dota2 would run around 15-20 FPS most of the times, but if there were alot of effects (like in ganks) it could often run around 10fps, which is very laggy. Also it would only run like this at minimum graphics, so if you want something to play dota I would suggest going for something a bit stronger, or maybe a desktop if possible.
    It's still possible to play dota2 on that laptop, but the graphics will have to look horrifying and still it will probably lag a bit.

    ME TOO! I play dota on my T420i with integrated graphic card. I can actually play games wit no hiccups. The only thing that is unpleasant is the low quality of the rendering, but since my screen is only 14.1 inches, you don't really notice it unless you go really close to the screen.

    I play the game with 960x640 resolution (or something like that), so i'm basically playing in windows mode.i play on a x200 with 12.1 inches, so i can probably survive with it coz I love Dota 2 too much man <3.but during high action teamfight scenes I get FPS from around 15-20. Rather frustrating, but Dota 2 is still an amazing game even at such sucky graphics.

    I would recommend buying a computer that actually has a video(graphics) card, not just intragated(how do you spell this?!?)
    It will run, but will be practically unplayable or unenjoyable...
    The truth about DotA and VALVe... Some VALVe employees loved to play DotA and created a team. With this team they participated in a tournament, but they lost horribly...

    "We lost??? No way.... WE ARE GONNA MAKE OUR OWN GAME SO WE CAN OWN!"
