Is that Laptop a good deal? Will this run MMORPGs on max settings? such as World of Warcraft, Star Trek Online, The Secret World, Star Wars: The Old Republic.

At 1280*1024 WoW should run fine on that. Don't know about the other games however. For $800 imo, it's not that great of a deal.

However, if you can spend $200 more this becomes a very good deal: http://www.logicbuy.com/deals/dell-studio-15-core-i7-qu...

How is that, compared to the original machine how much better is it, is it really $460 dollars better?

The Dell is an all around better machine. It has a newer and faster CPU, a higher resolution screen, a better/dedicated video card and a faster hard drive. The only down side is that it will have lower battery life. IMO, it is worth the $460.
