Looking for a new laptop/notebook and 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?

It's not a bad general purpose laptop.
It should run WoW OK on low~med setting and I think it would let you play SC2 on it's lowest settings. See this SC2 recommended list of laptop graphics.
To move up to SC2 medium graphics you'd want a ATI HD 5650 or better graphics.
