    I'd love to see how much the increase in FPS is with a 1.6GHz over the 1.4 variant, or 4Gb over 2GB respectively. Or even both over the base model!

    While not a benchmark, per se, I have the 1.4/4/64 BTO model, and ran World of Warcraft last night extremely smoothly. Ran it at native resolution with medium graphics settings, and was fine in Dalaran, and surprisingly smooth in our ICC10 raid last night through Lich King.

    Very encouraging to hear :) I usually play on my 27" i7, but when traveling, at my summer house or similar it would be nice to relax with some WoW when bored. I don't mind running on lowest settings as long as it's not stuttering / lagging.

    What kind of frame rates are you seeing? Both during outdoors questing or 10/25-man raids? Does fights with much happening at once (Blood Queen comes to mind, for example) make it crawl, or how does it handle that? If you're really bored, a video of WoW on the 11" would be awesome!

    I'm quite alright with the frame rates on the 1.4GHz/2GB, which I have. But I am curious about the 1.6GHz/4GB.

    It seems as if you are the one being a troll. The OP asked a valid question. Why should it matter whether or not he currently owns one?

    Not sure why you found it necessary to censor the word 'troll'.

    I was able to comfortably run medium settings (a mix of "Good" and "Fair"). Framerate was fine all through ICC10; lowest dip at any one point was either Lich King or Blood Queen, down to about 12-15, but it was still playable in a pinch. Had I lowered spell effects and textures on down, it probably would have been in the low/mid-20s. I don't run 25 Mans, but it should be similar performance, albeit you may need to turn down spell effects another level.
