Is this a good system for games like World of Warcraft?

Trying to surprise my sister with a laptop, but I'm new to this. Will this be okay to run games like Wow & Elder Scrolls?

    It cant run any game like wow or elder scrolls without "real graphics power". Mobile Intel HD is not enough for games.
  2. Best answer
    Nope. The laptop uses a dual core Ivy Bridge generation Core i3 CPU @ 2.5GHz. That is actually not bad at all. The problem it it uses an Intel HD 4000 graphics core. The HD 4000 actually does provide pretty decent performance given the fact that as recent as 2010 Intel more or less did not even bother with graphic cores capable of playing games. Unfortunately, it is still considered rather weak. Many modern games should be playable at low graphics quality and low resolution.
