Default Asus Laptop

I'm looking into buying an Asus laptop between $500-$800 mainly for college. I also want it to be able to run games at a decent speed and at decent settings (such as World of Warcraft). I'm not sure if I should go for their mobility or versatility series. Thanks for the help in advance.

What are you going to school for? If for CAD and such, you'd need a better laptop than that.

I am going to school for accounting so I don't think I need all that much.

After going through some filters and narrowing down my choices on newegg.com I came across one that seems like a really good deal. I'm not entirely sure about the CPU/GPU but it seems good for the price and it is exclusive to newegg.com:
A53SV-NH51 What do you guys think?

that's a very decent price for the specs on that laptop Oo (going to look into it for my self LOL) and as for WOW settings, basicly any new i5 with any ati or nvidia will do the trick with basic games.
