1.2ghz ibook G4
512mb of ram (sometime it's going to be 1gb, when I get around to looking for a stick in stores)
32 mb vram ati mobility radeon 9200.


So far games like Command and Conquer generals ran at medium settings at 1024X768 smooth. I was able to run Doom 3 on everything low with shaders on and special effects on (it was playable). Halo runs real smooth.

So how well will this run WoW. I have no problem turning everything down.

I ran WoW on my mac Mini 1.4 with 512MB ram and the same 32MB 9200 ATI, but I wouldn't want to do that for very long. The 1.2G4 might be enough. Big cities with lots of textures is where you will be seeing the most problems with bad framerates.
