Hey everyone!

I am going to be purchasing a 12" iBook in the next couple of weeks. I'm pretty into FFXI, but I was thinking of getting WoW for the iBook cause I'm gonna be on the road for business a lot this summer (and sadly can't drag my desktop along). Anway...

The computer I'm about to get is a 12.1" iBook with a 1 Ghz G4, 32meg Radeon 9200 card, and 768 megs of RAM.

Will it look decent on this laptop setup?

I'm on a 14 inch iBook with 1.25 GHz G4 (remember though, G4s are far superior to most other chips architecture wise, so you can consider that chip closer to a 2.5 GHz, same for your 1 GHz chip) and the same video card, though a lot less RAM (256, I need an expansion)

So far, it handles most of my current games pretty well, though I don't have WoW. Do realize that WoW will probably be optimized more for the final release, and have lower system reqs. You should be able to handle it fine, but do remember laptops have slower system bus and hard drives than their desktop counterparts.
