Default Laptop for medium graphics WoW


I'm about to buy a new laptop in a few weeks. I will use it for University (I'm from Europe) and for playing World of Warcraft at medium graphics.

My budget is £700 at MOST (around 1100$).

My choice, at the moment is the next laptop:
HP Pavilion dv6-6156ea 15.6" Laptop
Intel Core™ i5-2410M (2.3 Ghz, 3 MB L3 cache)
AMD Radeon HD 6490M, 1GB dedicated memory graphics card

Do you guys think I could play WoW at medium graphics and run it with 60-70 fps at least?
What do you think of this laptop?
If you know better models for the same price or lower prices, what else would you recommend?

Thank you!

HP laptops tend to overheat a lot, the HP I have can't even browse the web without overheating. I will look for an alternative tomorrow when I get on my PC if someone else doesn't beat me to it.

Stay clear of the DV6 models. They are known and proven to fail.

Take a look at this: Acer Aspire Timeline X5830TG Laptop - Laptops |
