I said it wasn't for gaming purposes but the wife wanted to know if certain games would run on the new laptop. The machine in question is
http://www.bestbuy.com/site/lenovo-ideapad-yoga-ultrabook-2-in-1-11-6-touch-screen-laptop-4gb-memory-128gb-solid-state-drive-silver-gray/1835037.p?id=1219065985762&skuId=1835037

The bullet points for those not interested in the link (and I don't blame you)
-4th Gen Intel® Core™ i5-4210Y mobile processor
-1.4GHz (with Turbo Boost up to 1.9GHz)
-Intel® HD Graphics 4200
-4GB RAM
-Windows 8.1

The games in question
-Hearthstone
-Diablo 3
-Starcraft (I'll assume she means 2 because to ask about 1 would be silly)
-World of Warcraft
-League of Legends (Even though I've said it runs on a potato)

She mentioned a couple others but I really can't recall off hand what they were.

Starcraft 2 and World of Warcraft would be fine playing on lowest graphics settings, but Diablo 3 might run at 20-30 fps on low.

I know you'll be able to run WoW. My setup was worse (2GB of ram, and a 1.2 GHz processor at the time) and I could.

That laptop is very costly if you havent brought it yet theirs laptops for the same price that can do some decent gaming.

I bought it for slightly cheaper with no intention of gaming. It's purpose was writing, learning, music, movies. The only gaming I ever had in mind was old things. Baldur's Gate 2 or Nethack for example. But the wife saw it and it's size and asked about the "newer" games.

I think Diablo 3 was the main one.

I myself had not played WoW since shortly after it's release and I was playing on some 1GB RAM laptop on dial up. I just didn't know how much things had changed. I figured it would be fine and I doubt it will end up on the machine anyway. But you know, better safe than sorry.

I played Diablo 2 on a machine with 64MB RAM. I think she could live with 25 FPS. (At least I would hope so.)

The thing that throws me for a loop is the processor really. The whole 1.4GHZ thing seems far too low for well anything. I'm obviously missing some key detail.
