    How can I know whether this will run WoW at full graphics?

    I'm about to buy a new laptop and I found this one that looks really good but how can I know if it will run WoW at full graphics? I know very little to nothing about computers so any additional advice is greatly appreciated.

    Very unlikely to run everything on ultra, as that is a fairly high res screen and a mid range GPU.

    I picked up one of these three weeks ago and absolutely love it....

    Slightly more expensive, but not by much. I wrote the second reveiw on it at new egg. I run everything on ultra and still have not had to hit the over clock button on it. Very happy with my purchase. They also offer it in a 17 inch screen version too.

    Hmm, is it possible to find a laptop that will run WoW at full graphics for around $1000-$1300?

    A desktop could do it for less then that. Unless you need it to be a laptop either build your own which will yield the best results, or if you are to afraid too, go to http://www.ibuypower.com/lobby.aspx

    You could build a really strong desktop for that price.
    If you do insist on having a laptop, then no, 1000-1300 will not let you run wow ultra with acceptable fps

    Try to at least consider a desktop. You want it for wow, so I kind of doubt you're going to be traveling the planet playing wow, and the beauty of building your own PC is you can get much, much more milage out of it. Because you can upgrade easily when you need to. Laptops you can't do that. But if you're looking for stability in running higher res and high graphic settings, I would think about a desktop.
    Perfect example of why "community" forums are poisonous to the health of a development team. These developers are wasting hundreds of hours trying to stem the tide of incessant bitchery that would never, ever abate so long as these entitled, unfortunate human beings don't get their way.
