My acer TravelMate played UT2004 in the lowest settings before I was aware of how sht it actualy was. It was ok though, very poor graphics. I think anything half decent would be able to play WOW anyway.

Do you have a real reason to get a notebook for gaming? If not, just get a desktop. Notebooks are more expensive overall. My notebook cost $1300. I could have gotten a similar performance desktop for $500, but I need the mobility. Notebooks also have the heat problem. Since everything is so close together it can get hot fast unless you have a good cooling pad or something like that. Just setting it on a desk probably wouldn't be the greatest airflow. Just get a desktop if you don't need mobility.
