Hi I am looking to buy a laptop for around $400 that I can game on. The primary games I will be playing are Diablo III and world of warcraft. I also like to play other games like minecraft, Star Wars: The Old Republic, Starcraft, and generally anything my computer can handle. But the main game I will be playing is World of Warcraft and that is my main concern. I am obviously NOT looking to play on ultra graphics settings at 60+ fps. But I would like to play on low - medium with consistant 30+ fps (even in 25 raid situations). I plan on building a decent desktop for gaming but my current laptop is on the fritz and I need a good one to use in the mean time.
I have been looking around and trying to do a little research of my own, but I am not very savvy when it comes to this kind of stuff. From what I read and from what I have searched ( http://www.walmart.com/ip/Gateway-Refurbished-Red-15.6-... ) seems like a good laptop. I was going to just purchase this, but i figure i might see what you people think about it. Do you think that it would run world of warcraft decently enough for what i am looking for?
EDIT: I also found this computer on amazon refurbished for $319, do you think it is safe to get a refurbished one off of amazon? http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B00BJQ86H8/sr=/q...
Sorry in advance for anything I most likely did wrong.
Thank you

The laptop you have selected is according to me the best for your purpose out there as it can play all the games you require at low settings at a 30+ FPS. You can go for it. (It's better than intel's HD4000)

Regarding refurbished laptops I have never used any so I can't actually comment on that.
