I don't think you'd be able to run anything to big like WOW.

Doesn't Natej315 run CS and CS:S on his 32mb laptop GPU. I think you might be able to run older games, but not the newer ones, and they will have to be on low settings at that.

I have an ATi Mobility 200M, and I can play Diablo II on it with no lag.

Seriously, though, it can play Unreal Tournament 2004, and that pushes it some. It can play GTA: Vice City, though, Sacred, Aliens Vs. Predator II, and some other older games like that. I tried putting Quake 4 on it... It worked, but the screen wouldn't load completely. I mean the game screen... Half of it was loaded and half of it wasn't. I had about an average of one frame per twenty seconds.

try it and find out.. if you keep the frame rate low, should hold out... just rember not to put the laptop on something which could make it overheat (like a bed or something), basiclly, make sure that you keep it cool while your playing games.. good luck!!
