I have an okay laptop and I'm tired of having lag issues in raids. It's not good to be healing ICC25 heroic as a shaman with lag issues. My internet seems great... 43ms ping. Anything else I do with my computer is fast and efficient. But World of Warcraft just doesn't seem to perform well at times, like in raids. I die in fires that I don't see, and that I don't have a problem with as melee. Like, for instance, I SAW the fire, moved out, and died anyway because apparently it was bigger than I could see. This is debilitating in this game! I don't have tons of cash to spend on upgrades, and I don't know what to do. My latency is around 100-125 normally, and my FPS bounces all over the place, from like 8fps to 50fps, when I have the lowest settings possible AND the lowest resolution I can have. Please help. Here are my system specs.

There isn't much you can do for system upgrades since its a laptop. I would recommend that you save your money for a better laptop. I also recommend that you try updating your drivers. Go here for video drivers. Just click the button to check latest updates and follow the prompts.

The real issue is that your video is intel, which is not suited for any gaming. ATI and Nvidia are simply much better, even in the mobile space.
