I would love to see a recomened low cost laptop that would run wow. I have been playing on a subpar laptop for years now and want to upgrade to something shiney. Not looking to be super cheap, maybe around 600-800. Any recomendations?

I posted about the Asus G51vx-RX05 a bit below. It's a bit above your stated price range, but it is a very nice machine. If you're willing to spend a bit extra on something snazzier, definitely check it out. Good luck on your search. :-)

I just bought a refurbished Toshiba Satellite (L305D-S5934) for $420 (with tax and shipping). It has a dual core AMD Turion X2 2.0GHz processor, 3GB of RAM (that I upgraded to 4GB for another $40), 250GB of HD space, and an integrated ATi X3100 video card. It runs WoW like a champ. 40FPS most places, 20FPS in Dal. It has some trouble with heavy spell effects, and I have to keep the shadows simple, but it runs great.
