I was thinking of buying a new laptop, and I'd like your advice.
Before you go desktop > laptop on me, it needs to be a laptop since it'll be for work too.

Intel Core i7 2630QM @ 2.1Ghz // OR A DIFFERENT LAPTOP: Intel Core i7 2670QM @ 2.2-3.1Ghz
nVidia GeForce GT555M
500 GB HDD (7200 RPM) // OR A DIFFERENT LAPTOP: 750 GB HDD (5400 RPM)

I'd like to run GW2 at max settings, but am willing to tone down graphics if needed (for example in big events).

I remember running GW1 at max on a REALLY old computer, so I trust ArenaNet to optimize GW2 the same way. What's your opinion on this?
