    Display: 15.6''CineCrystal HD LED-backlit TFT LCD, an analysis of 1366 x 768 pixel, supporting simultaneous multi-window display through GridVista.
    Memory: 4096MB (2 x 2048MB) DDR2, at 667 MHz.
    Hard Drive: 500GB SATA.
    Graphics card: ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4330 with 512MB memory self.
    Battery: 6-cell Li-ion, 4400 mAh, 48.84W, by approximately 3.5 hours autonomy (as announced by the manufacturer and may vary depending on usage).

    If it shows more than the login screen, I'd be surprised. The 1.2GHz CPU is way too weak for today's WoW.

    To me, that sounds like one of those laptops that have ultra low power consumption, but I could be wrong since it has a dedicated graphics card. However, the CPU is extremely slow, and I highly doubt that it will even start WoW. If it does start, I highly doubt that it will run normally on a 1.2GHz CPU...

    But maybe it could who knows... I run WoW on a 1.5GHz intel core 2 duo and a 8400m gs... So my CPU is a little better but my GPU is a little bit worse.

    Bottom line is: to me, it sounds like you are getting ripped off. A laptop with such low end specs should cost half of that price. 600+ euros is a lot, even for European prices which are not nearly as bad as they used to be 5-10 years ago in comparison to the US prices.

    No bueno. Bad processor speed, my computer about 8 years ago had a faster processor than that and still had trouble with games from 5 years ago. Graphics card im not sure about because I dont know much about ATI. As said before, this seems like one of those low power work only computers.

    Everything is funny as long as it is happening to somebody else.

    Bad processor speed indeed. But, you cannot judge the performance of a CPU solely based on the clock speed. I bet that the CPU mentioned in the OP will outperform just about any old school P4 with a 2GHz+ clock speed.

    Hell to the no. That's your bottleneck in raids. I would go with a desktop if you can. Much easier to upgrade/replace.
