Ok, im alittle confused.

I bought a new laptop,

SPECS:

ACER Aspire 6530-5753
AMD Turion X2 Ultra 64 ZM-82 2.2GHz
2MB L2 Cache
ATI mobility Radeon HD 3650 1GB
4GB DDR2 667
320 GB Harddrive...partitioned 50/50...?? weird but ok
Windows Vista Home Premium 64-bit
16" widescreen display (WXGA)

With those specs, you would suspect that this laptop could play MANY games on high settings, well, my second desktop here, has less than that (but it is running XP) and runs WoW on high settings with FPS at 31-33. This laptop runs it at high with FPS at 29-31 but it is definitly NOT SMOOTH at all.

The only thing I could think of is the processor, only running at 2.2 GHz, my desktop has a E8400 at 3.6GHz.

Others with this same laptop have said that they can run Unreal 3 at high settings no problem... why cant I run WoW, is it more resource consuming than higher end graphical games?

If any of you have suggestions please let me know, I cant overclock the GPU, tried multiple utilities, none work at all. The BIOS has 0 options for overclocking, infact the only options it has is change the time, and boot sequence, THATS IT!

So, what do yall think?

Gaming on a laptop is never good, your GPU is a mobile version of a desktop card which reduces performance. The Turion is AMD's mobile CPU which isn't good. The best gaming laptops have desktop processors inside with discrete graphics cards. Also, your CPU should usually be about 2.5GHz. or faster regardless of the number of cores. I haven't played WoW in a long time but, but I do remember reading that it takes a slight performance hit with some 64-bit systems. It's an older game not optimized for it or multiple cores, so sheer performance of the CPU is a must with that game while running in 64-bit. Actually, the game can use multiple cores, but not the same way as a game designed for it from the ground up would.

from what ive seen with WoW its not a graphics intensive game its more focused on having a good CPU and memory. a decent video card should handle it fine, but the turion, while a good mobile CPU is not made for gaming. people diss the turion but its cuz they are trying to use it for what it was not designed for-gaming, it was made for mobile computing, web surfing, office apps, media, etc. not gaming. WoW will suffer with a CPU like this, and the slower rated ram (667 mhz) might affect it as well.
