    My friend has a P4 1.5ghz 1.2GB of SDRAM (PC100), and a Radeon 9250 it can run WoW with all the settings on high with no lag unless you are in a high population area. Even in the higher population areas like IF it is still playable. WoW really doesn't need much of a machine or video card.

    When we play WoW even though my MBP has far better graphics and processing abilities i cant tell that she is on an older machine.

    'Well' is a debatable term. For example, I run WoW on my MacBook Core Duo, and it's fairly smooth at max resolution, but I have the distance turned down, shaders off, and a couple of other things. It still looks decent, but I am unable to turn up the options without having it become choppy and (IMO) unplayable. Now, an iMac for about the same price would run WoW far better, but it is not portable. There are tradeoffs to going portable or going desktop. Which one would you prefer?

    My friends and I have found that WoW is really only RAM intensive. Graphics card and processor really don't make much difference if you simply want to run the game with adequate settings.
