Hello, i would like to know, if anyone have experience with playing wow on radeon hd5145 ?
Looking forward to buy a thinkpad L512 with this specs:
Core i5-480M 2x 2.66GHz • 4096MB (1x 4096MB) • 320GB • ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5145 512MB...

i know it's awful card for games, but just curious if i could waste some of my free time playing WoW, HoN, Torchlight,... on some medium details and acceptable resolution?

thanks in advance

Hello and welcome to the forums
You can play WoW on low settings on a resolution like 1024x768 or so.
Have a look at the link below,it shows the performance of the card in numerous games

Hello ketaxl
All that is really known ATM is that WoW:Cat will get tweaks and updates to the graphics engine.
No one knows right now what that means in terms of hardware requirements.
If you're goal is to play on medium graphics settings you'd be well advised to wait a bit and see how things develop.
Keep an eye out on the World of Warcraft: Cataclysm forums and try to get a read on what graphics card you'll need to meet your goal.

Here is a mobile GPU benchmark of WoW. My read on the chart is that you'd end up playing WoW:Cat in low quality graphics to get good fluid & smooth game play.
