For a laptop it's alright I guess, it probably has the ****-tier of i5 processors though.
Where the **** are the specs? They won't say what graphics card it has so my guess is a low-end one.

Nevertheless, it will most likely do fine for playing ****ty games like conqueronline (just don't overheat it), browsing the internet, watching films etc.



It sort of looks like this? (specswise)

I wasn't, laptops tend to overheat fast, might want to get some support to have the backside vent okay, otherwise it won't last the whole day without overheating.

I've had a few laptops so overheating np for me, and tbh reckon it'll be ok for low def WoW?
Don't intend on playing it, just an example.

low def sc2 works, but wow will be a burden on yer graphics card. maybe completely low def with sucky fps yea, but if I were you I'd toss in an additional 200 and get a decent graphs card.

Need moar info, but it sounds just like a basic, cheap laptop. If you're not gonna be using it for everything, it's fine. If you're gonna actually make it your main machine, you're better off upping a few things, like the video card.
And speaking from experience, 500 GB isn't very much space. You'd want to think about getting a nice external HD, too.

With the recent updates on graphics WoW will probably lag on that laptop, maybe try something low-end like a tetris flash-game.
