From: Montreal, Qc, Canuckistan
Happy with a sub-1000 Can laptop by Toshiba, Satellite A300, with the ATI HD3470 GPU.
Comes with a 250 gigs SATA drive, real hw sound, 3 gigs of DDR RAM, 1280x800 LCD, vga and HDMI out, can extend desktop to vga or HDMI, don't know if you can do triple head with it :)
Haven't played WoW since 2005, and I hear they've sneakily ramped up the eye candy minimums, but it should run it fine.
I run Vista64 (Home Premium included) and Kubuntu Intrepid on it, doing just fine.
Runs the latest Flight Gear Flight Sim just fine, even in MP although like everyone else, I get some choppiness when loading the heavier a/c models.
And it uses Open Scene Graph, which is not optimized for gaming.
All in all, very happy with my purchase. They also have slightly more expensive satellite models with nvidia GPUs if you prefer, btw.
Just check your local toshiba site, or resellers.
