    recommend a laptop for WoW

    can anyone recommend a 'cheap' laptop.

    i just need it to play world o' warcraft on it, so what type of mobile gfx card should i be looking at?? would an integrated intel jobbie do it, or would i need the ati/geforce go route?

    thnx in advance

    Wow runs like a dog on my laptop due to it's GF Go FX5200. You're going to want the best GFX card you can get in a laptop to run it well, integrated will definitely not do it. Why not just play on your desktop? ;p

    I would love to get a laptop, then my g/f couldn't complain if I sat down in the front room with her!

    WoW will run on an integrated 9600 or equivalent without any problems (just a little initial lag when you get into towns for it to load up). I'm playing it on my Apple G4 Powerbook (not the newest version).
