Looking for a new laptop/notebook and Newegg.com has that lowest price for the HP G42-230us . Basically I'd use this for school and WoW and possibly SCII on low settings. I'm wondering if this is a good deal and will it be able to run SCII on low? My old Compaq C700 can run WoW on low so I know it can run that. Pros or Cons to this pre-built?

I have this laptop and i am able to run GTA 4 in med. settings so it is pretty good... cons are that the graphics memory is like 512 mb so its not a full gaming system, and the battery goes like nothing, my computers batter runs for like an hour and a half when playing games, which gets annoying to be searching for an outlet everywhere you go... i am also using this for school.. it is a fast computer, its got a little bit of everything..

I would recommend highly, check out squaretrade.com. You are able to buy a 3 year warranty there. You've got 90 days after purchase to do it if I am not mistaken. I just know hp had some issues a while back with video chips going out, etc. So I would recommend the 3 year warranty.
