Hello,
I was wondering if this laptop would be able to play World of Warcraft. I plan on switching it to XP rather than Vista, I like it better and it will being less taxing on the computer. I know its a crapy video card, do you know if it can be upgraded on this computer? If it isn't I would think WoW could still run at min graphics... Anyway, I would love to hear what people think.

Yes, it can. WoW is not very exigent. Just a PIII or Athlon @ 800 MHz, 512 MB of RAM and 32 MB video memory are needed. GMA alone can handle it, no need for a video upgrade.

Yeah it should run WOW fine ...

remember though that the auction says:

Items NOT included:
Ac Adapter/power Cord

Just keep that in mind.

Looks like that guy is peddling best buy customer returns, don't be too surprised if you get a busted up, nonworking piece of junk.

Dell have been making things a similar way by not including the AC adapter by default. What a bummer.
