Try looking at the ultrabooks and see if notebookcheck has some benchmarks for WOW or such.

My current Dell laptop is five years old next week! And its physically falling apart. We had a good run, but its time for it to go. I'm not particularly knowledgeable with laptops, so I just wanted to know if there were any recommendations.
What I need:
-Lightweight. I'm a small person. My current laptop is 6 lbs, which for me is really heavy. 4lbs? would be lovely.
-Light gaming. I play random MMO's... LoL... just decent fps.
-Basic college stuff. Decent battery life.
I have a lot of laptops I'm looking at on newegg which would be great, but they're all ~5.75lbs. I can't find anything as light as I would like. If anything, I'll settle for them :/
