I'd prefer an Intel processor for Blizzard games.

The GPU has 128 shaders

it will perform the most very basic things

If you don't mind playing WoW on lowest of low, 800x600, at 10-15FPS, go ahead

SC2, forget it

The person who listed the tech specs on the thing failed so hard.

Processor series: AMD A6
Processor brand: Intel

Wow....

So, what you guys are telling me is, I shouldn't get this laptop if I even want to play slightly older games like wow, sc2, or bc2 on even medium settings since this laptop isn't designed for that?

the hp laptop has me curious but I heard stay away from HP laptops at all costs. They break all the time from what I'm told.

You will be able to play those games, but that's a low-end laptop, and you will be getting a pretty bare minimum experience with the games. If you just want to play the games and don't care about resolution, performance etc. then go for it. These machines aren't really designed for games, and even supposedly lower-end games like SC2 and WoW require a decent amount of hardware muscle to pump out good visuals at a decent clip.

I bought my landlord [a relative] a cheapest of the cheap $300 HP laptop back in 2008 so that they would need internet so that I could use it too. The laptop still works.

HP laptops are really reliably built as best I can tell, that's not the problem. The problem is that they run hot as hell. I've never had one break on me (well, one, but there was a recall on that model and they shipped me a replacement 4 years after I bought it which is still a long-ass time for a laptop to last, especially one with a design flaw) and I've owned several. I wouldn't recommend one for even the lightest of dedicated gaming, any more than Facebook flash stuff will heat it up like nobody's business, that's been the case for all of them that I've owned.

My first gaming laptop was a Toshiba. It too ran hot.

Can you believe they'd charge $2k for a laptop with dual GPUs in SLI and sandwich a single heatsink between the two GPUs?
