Default $700 WoW laptop

Hey all, I'm looking to buy a cheap laptop for internet/email and playing some games. WoW would be the most intensive game. I was wondering if someone could recommend me a decent laptop, I'm not very up to date on good brands/sites etc.

Newegg.com - Acer Aspire AS6930-6560 NoteBook Intel Core 2 Duo T5800(2.00GHz) 16" Wide XGA 4GB Memory 320GB HDD DVD Super Multi NVIDIA GeForce 9600M GS - Laptops / Notebooks

This would be a great choice, as it has a dedicated graphics card, unlike a lot of laptops in the price range. The only down side that I can think of, is the screen resolution.

You could go cheaper than that laptop, it doesn't take a $750 laptop to play WoW well.

I have the 9830, and even with the 19" screen, it games nice.
