    If you paid a lot of good money for an M18x, I'd expect it to be working perfectly! =/

    Have you tried reformatting your Laptop?

    Haven't played WoW since SWtOR came out, but any machine might chug a bit in a very crowded area (i.e. lots of characters on the screen) and if your server is anything like mine was orgrimmar is always crazy crowded.

    From Gameim buying wow is one good chance, I like it to hope that I can make full use of it, it gives up to high level, in future, I have won in game.

    The 64bit client is out, u just gotta download it separately. Also I've found out crossfire only runs on wow and swtor if the game is on fullscreen and not windowed or fullscreen (windowed)

    If you played in "Full Screen (Windowed)" instead of "Full Screen", your FPS should increase significantly.

    Also, I'd put shadows on "low". Not worth it since it's a resource hog.

    Edit: Didn't notice the post above me regarding crossfire only running on full screen mode.
