i'd say thats a pretty good laptop other than the graphics card, since its intel and intel's graphics card are ussally intergrated (meaning they're not that good and have shared video ram) but i think you will be abled to play WoW on maybe lowered settings and not maxed out, i used to play wow on an old 2004 desktop with 512 mb ram, and a really crappy intel video card so you could play it have fun
I've raided in The Burning Crusade with less of a laptop than that. I did get only like 5 fps though.
That laptop will run the game, just don't expect high settings.
Like Mithness said, the gfx card will be sort of a bottleneck. Just make sure you tweak your settings till you get a balance of gfx and fps that you can live with. In a game like wow, gfx aren't that important luckily.
