hey!
I'm looking at getting an ASUS K50IN laptop, with Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0 GHz, 2MB cache, and 800MHz system bus speed.
with 4GB RAM DDR2

I'm just wondering if 800 MHz is a bit slow? is it worth paying more for a faster bus?
I mainly want to be able to play Warcraft and watch movies and what not.

Sorry, don't know much about this technical stuff-

Thanks!

Its standard for the processor in that laptop. Its also not something that you will change in a laptop. In a desktop that number can be raised to overclock or run the processor at a faster than stock speed.

If you are going to spend more in my opinion I would make sure you have a discreet graphics card and not onboard. For what you are doing with it the Core2 with 4 gigs of RAM should be fine but even WOW will benefit from seperate GFX.
