Hm...perhaps WoW requirements don't compare to the games the reviewer used as benchmarks for the 4 laptop comparison. Then again, he mentioned "next generation" stuff and from that review, the 5670's with x1400represent the "low end".
Now, ironically...at the same time I don't want to go out and purchase a gaming system because thats not what I really need. It is just that I'd hate to buy a new laptop in 2006 with the forsight that I probably wouldn't be able to play games published in 2007/2008. Especially since laptops offer little upgradability.
I guess to have both good stable quality + up-to-date gaming capability just isn't reality. For me, if Lenovo/IBM would just get up with ATI X1900 or something, that would be one heck of a deal.
Just curious, what other laptops have you (or anyone else who own or like ACER 5670's considered). My friends Travelmate 40XX keeps having shutdown/over heating problems, but I am positively biased towards ACER so I consider them.
