Go here for all your " Will my comp run it?" questions.  It's not always completely accurate.  (It said I could play Sim City 4 on my laptop, but I get some graphical hickups).  I use this site for just about everything tho.

Um, assuming you have an account since you're asking this, Levio, just download the WoW client on your laptop and enter the game and see how it runs....that's about as easy as it gets.

Only thing about it is it fails you if you don't have enough HD space.

Yeah, that's why you have to see why you failed and know your computer.  Nothing beats running the game on the computer for real, but this is a good start to see if you even have a chance.

Well see your MAIN problem is that you're trying to use WoW at all.

I'd say if the laptop under 4 years old (about the age of WoW) you could run it. That's just my guessing.

I don't know Moon that well, so for all I know, he could be a crazy stalker or something.  I mean, his avatar IS a total nutjob, ya know.

Besides, I wouldn't want to play with you either, Gunner.  So  = P

LOL  I don't doubt your healing abilities, sir, but you can't lure me in like that.  My brother is a Paladin, one of my cousins is a Druid, and my other cousin has a Priest.  I never have to worry about heals.  =  D

It pretty much does not matter to be honest, i used to run wow on my old lappy which had a build in GPU unbranded and ran wow fine. WoW has such lo reqs to be honest it shouldnt be a problem unless you get an absolute turd of a laptop
