Very Concerned about 1.5 ghz quad core

So I am buying a new laptop. I'm on a very tight budget of about $400. So I found a laptop for $350 and it has all the specs I need but the 1.5 ghz processor is very low. I plan on playing Guild Wars 2 when it comes out but I don't know if it'll be good enough. I understand that a quad core is good but I don't know if it's going to work with the low ghz. Please let me know what you think about my situation. Thanks!

More about very concerned quad core

    It would work probably on low maybe medium with AA turned off.
  2. A $350 laptop is not something to buy and expect to play new games on. At least not at anything but the lowest settings.
  3. the cpu would be the last thing to worry about, i'd expect it to have a pretty poor gpu.
  4. The vast majority of games only use 2 core. No idea about GW2.

    Therefore, I recommend a faster dual core CPU rather than a slow quad core CPU. Is integrated graphics good enough for GW2? I have no idea.
