Default Which notebook is best for World of warcraft?

I was looking for a notebook that can run WoW decently(without lag) and maybe some warhammer online when it comes out next year
Also need it for school, but then I also want to be able to upgrade hard drive and prob upgrade to a dvd burner n the future. This might be a stupid question but.... wold it be possible to run BF2 on low settings for whichever one is the best pick. O yah i might add i play WoW on the weekends for atleast 10+hours, and I had a gateway computer sold that piece of junk on ebay. But ya out of these 2 notebooks which is the best for of course world of warcraft and maybe just maybe BF2??????

If you have the extra money, go for the second system (With the Core2Duo). They should both run WoW fine, but the Core2Duo processor is much faster.

You will notice the benefits of the dual-core whenever you have more than one thing running at once. Even with WoW it will run faster.

For being less than $70 more expensive, the Dell is a great deal. I would definitely go for that one.

The core2duo is a great chip, I've got one in my Dell Latitude D820, but the hypermemory from ATI and the Turbo Cache from Nvidia both use system memory, if you're looking for a gaming notebook look at the XPS line, the GeForce go series all have dedicated memory on chip
