    how will the Toshiba Satellite C55DT-A5306 perform with games such as World of Warcraft. GTA VI, Assassin’s Creed?

    We have 3 of these laptops at work and they are not that great for other than minor admin tasks. The system seem to pause quite often while typing. We seem to have run into a video memory issue and there is NO hard drive light so you cannot tell if the HD is actively working.
    As you noticed in the description above, older games may be ok or newer games in low res, but I really feel the shared video memory hurts this laptop. maybe with 8GB or higher it will be smoother,
