    WoW is designed to run on your toaster, you'll have to be more specific than that. 25man raids? Maximum graphics? Bare minimum? You shouldn't have any problem running WoW on medium-high settings with that laptop.

    I would say though to keep shadows at the lowest setting though, OP. You can have a lot of other things set really high, but shadows eat even some of the best computers on the market, and also since you're running with a laptop, I'd suggest trying to give your computer less reason to push itself, little airflow = easy path to overheating. Yes you'll do well with that laptop, however I'd still be careful how much you try to push it.

    You didn't mention what graphics card that laptop has. If it has onboard graphics, then doing most 5 man dungeons and all raids will be out of the question. Also, if you already have it, best thing to do is try out and see for yourself what results you can get.

    That's a bit generous. Original graphic engine? Perhaps. Today's version of the graphics engine? Hardly, unless you mean solo play in the middle of nowhere.

    OP: What graphics card does your laptop have? There is none listed. Also, the mobile i3's aren't really the strongest of CPUs for gaming.
