Default Looking for a LAptop to play WoW

Hello im looking for a laptop. its rolling around tax time and being in the air force i travel a lot and thought that a laptop would be best for me. only problem is that i only want to play about 1,000 for it and i want it to be able to play WoW. Can anyone help me out and suggest a laptop or a place i could look for laptops?

Well, I have a year-old gateway cx210x, 2 gigs of ram, core2duo 2.0, and an ati x1400 graphics card. It runs wow at full settings just fine. It's not 60fps, but it's not slow. I'd say with a gig of ram, and a decent graphics card, you'll be just fine. I'm sure there's some place to get that for 1000 bucks.
