    Will run half way decent i believe. The only drawback would be the 5200 i believe.

    Fine

    hat'll run fine. I run it on a Rev. A iMac with slightly better specs (same graphics card) at very high resolution (20" screen, cranked up all the way). A 12" screen would be apiece of cake for your graphics card. You could even get better texture/draw distance than me.

    I get between 16 and 24 fps (besides when I'm in IF) on my 12" PowerBook Rev C, (1.33 GHz). I opted for the BTO 5400 HD and I also have the RAM maxed out. I run WoW at native resolution with most settings turned down.

    I usually get better than 24fps (outside of Ironforge of course) and I've only got 768megs. You'll be fine.
