Can I just make a quick side note about using World of Warcraft as a barometer for modern gaming on a netbook. Firstly it is not modern in any way. It came out in 2005 and by video game standards that is ANCIENT. Secondly the system specs are as follows: Microsoft Windows Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7 (32- & 64-bit supported) Intel Pentium 4 or AMD Athlon XP 1500+ 1300 MHz 512 MB or more of RAM (1 GB for Vista Users) 32 MB 3D video card with Hardware T&L or better 15 GB free HD space 4Ã— CD-ROM drive Broadband Internet connection So of course it can run it....it requires a computer from 10 years ago. Modern gaming refers to games that have specs for systems from this decade. Half life and quake will run on a netbook too...does that make it a gaming device? If Blizzard chose to they could easily port WoW to the iPad.
