Synopsis: Checkout Steve “Chippy” Paine’s video as he uses the expanded storage and mobility of the MyDigitalSSD OTG SuperSpeed USB 3.0 solid state drive to play Blizzard's World of Warcraft (WoW) on his HP Stream 11 notebook.

Notebooks are becoming ever more popular due to their low cost entry point and access to simple apps as well as the internet. These mobile computers are great for light work and practical for what they offer, but they can be held back from playing some video games. This is because of one or two reasons; the low processing power of a notebook, or its limited drive space.

Dealing with the low processing power is beyond the scope of this post, however if the only thing holding you back from installing that game is disk space, then a mobile SSD is the solution. A mobile SSD like the MyDigitalSSD SuperSpeed OTG is available in 64GB, 128GB, 256GB, and 512GB varieties and has the additional benefit of USB 3.0 UASP support for fast loading times.

In this video, Steve “Chippy” Paine runs an installation of World of Warcraft off a 128GB OTG on a HP Stream 11. The HP Stream 11’s processing power does maintain a playable frame rate at lower quality settings, but the frame rate drops when the quality is increased. The OTG on the other hand continued to offer fast loading times through the USB 3.0 UASP interface, despite the quality settings.

When he isn't playing WoW, Chippy also reviews, overviews, and provides how-to videos for laptops, Chromebooks, Ultrabooks, notebooks, and more on his website UMPCportal.com as well as on his YouTube Channel.
