Can your computer handle the latest World of Warcraft expansion? 

Blizzard has just released the minimum and recommended specification to run Warlords of Draenor for PC and Mac.

Because Blizzard are introducing redesigned classic WoW characters in this expansion, there is some worry in the WoW community that the character overhauls might take a hit on system performance. 

Although the new, more detailed player models “means slightly more processing power is required,” Blizzard community manager Taepsilum reassured players on the WoW Battlenet forum that the “dev team is working hard making sure that WoW is as resource efficient as possible” so that players can “enjoy playing with the new models.”
