    I suggest one of these (please don't get the one you linked):

    1st: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834246615

    The HD Graphics 4000 on here will run WoW very well (medium-high).
    5400 RPM HDD (Not as fast as a 7200 RPM drive, many people hate that, but you get better graphics with this system.)
    2nd: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834246485

    7200 RPM Drive (loads WoW faster)
    HD Graphics 3000 has about half (?) the power of HD graphics 4000.
    Both come with i3. In my opinion, go with #1, because it will run WoW a lot better, however, if you want to be under $500, and have your OS and WoW go slightly faster, go with #2.

    We use those computers at my school, may not be the same, but for us that brand is very bad even for basic school work...

    You don't care very much about the quality of your products, do you?
    Lenovo (earlier IBM) havn't changed the design of their Thinkpads in 10+ years, so you might be mistaking newer laptops for 2005's low end laptops.

    Saying Lenovo is a bad brand is ignorant in my opinion.

    On topic, I agree with Klutzington, the HD 4000 is plenty good for WoW, the laptop OP linked would be good if it had more/faster RAM and possibly a dedicated GPU.
