Is this a new issue with your computer? Or has WoW always been slow in populated areas?

This may be an issue with networking rather than system hardware. When you are in crowded areas that usually means there is a large influx of communication going on between you, the server, and other players. Are you running any firewalls/real-time protection or anti-virus software?

I also notice you are using an Intel Express graphics card (Integrated). This may be the cause of your framerates as these cards aren't meant for gaming.

Please goto THIS sticky and follow the link to the System Requirements Lab. When there, use the drop down arrow to select World of Warcraft <Expansion> then run the test.

Post your results in the next post.

ehm the first time other results then the second time, seems like the video card makes me fail indeed:

Video Card FAIL: Sorry, your video card does not meet this recommended requirement.

Recommended: 64MB VRAM 3D graphics processor with Vertex and Pixel Shader capability, such as an NVIDIA GeForce FX 5700 class card or above.
You Have: Mobile Intel® 965 Express Chipset Family () FAIL: Sorry, your video card does not meet this recommended requirement.
Video Card Features - Minimum attributes of your Video Card Video RAM: Required - 64 MB , You have - 358 MB
Video Card 3D Acceleration: Required - Yes , You have - Yes
Video HW Transform & Lighting: Required - Yes , You have - Yes
Vertex Shader Ver.: Required - 2.0 , You have - 3.0
Pixel Shader Ver.: Required - 2.0 , You have - 3.0

theres a total of 6/6, i got all passed for recommed with 5/6 or 6/6 only the video card is on 2/6 with 4/6 recommed.

But video cards arent changable for laptops so this will mean a whole new one.
