    Possibly returning for mists? (based on playability of computer)

    Hey there, have been digging through the internet left and right but have decided to just ask my questions here.
    I'm thinking of returning to WOW after a year and half or so break to play casually, see the new content, try some stuff, basically I've been getting the itch to play badly since mists came out. Didn't really like cataclysm.
    Is my computer even at a level for it to be worth returning? I'm aware the card is outdated and such, but would I be able to see decent-good performance all-round if I used bootcamp (which I have no idea how to do/have never used)?
    Specs below:
    Model Name: MacBook Pro
    Model Identifier: MacBookPro5,4
    Processor Name: Intel Core 2 Duo
    Processor Speed: 2.53 GHz
    Number Of Processors: 1
    Total Number Of Cores: 2
    L2 Cache: 3 MB
    Memory: 4 GB
    Bus Speed: 1.07 GHz
    Boot ROM Version: MBP53.00AC.B03
    SMC Version (system): 1.49f2

    Chipset Model: NVIDIA GeForce 9400M
    Type: GPU
    Bus: PCI
    VRAM (Total): 256 MB

    Any and all help would be appreciated! Thanks.
    I'm aware this isn't the best place to post this but I'm not really receiving any responses on other forums/sites, so bear with me please.

    I'd say a PC with those specs should work on low graphics.

    Mac I'm not sure, I know Mac has higher requirements.

    Plus it's a laptop so heat may be an issue.

    If I say it's Azshara next enough times, eventually I'll be right. So here we go again. It's got to be Azshara next, so get ready for the Sylvanas expansion we inevitably get instead!

    You would have more luck in the Computer forum:


    I'm guessing they have folks hanging there that are "experts" in these kinda questions. Good luck to ya!
