Also gpu is this
ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570

The gaming performance of the ATI Mobility Radeon HD4570 should be very similar to the desktop HD 4550 which features similar specifications. Games of 2009 like COD MW 2 or Risen only run in low details and resolutions fluently. Some may not even run fluently at all (e.g. Crysis and NFS Shift depending on the CPU). Older or less demanding games like Left 4 Dead should even run in high detail settings.

For world of tanks, the requirements are this
Operating system: Windows XP/Vista/7
Processor (CPU): 2.2 GHz
Memory(RAM): 2 GB
Videocard: GeForce 7600GT or ATI X1600 with 256 MB

The graphics card you have is much higher than the requirement, and so is the ram. You should run WoT fine.

Laptops are good for moving around a lot but 97% of them are not set up for gaming. Even though your specs say you can play the game. But the real question is for how long.

Laptops get hot fast and if you don't keep them cleaned from dust and have a external cooler for it, it will get very hot and start to stutter and crashing. If you want to game on a laptop then get a gaming one.

They are very expensive and you can upgrade them as well where you can't upgrade a normal Laptop except the ram. If you really want to game you should look into a gaming PC.

You can build one cheaper than a gaming laptop and if you up grade it won't cost you an arm and a leg to do so as a gaming laptop would. This is just food for thought and I wish you good luck.

On xoticpc.com I customized my G75VW-RS72 to have 16 gb of ram and you can get a 256gb ssd also and it would only be $1809. Xotic pc can also change the color of the lights and add a new cooling system. Shipping is free with them. They have a 3d model of this laptop available, the ASUS G75VW-DS73-3D.
Here are all their Asus laptops just scroll down to the bottom for the gaming laptops.

yes, much better. If you were in the US, as jim points out, it's possible to find deals that will save you ~$200-250, check around europe, might find something similar. I know eurocom sells customized laptops
