the mouse pad is horrible... really, dont buy it, actually, the mouse pad is okay its just the two buttons have been integrated and are over sensitve.... one click on the buttons and it's a lucky guess where the cursor might end up.... i bought these for our network (read one review and it praised it up) and everyone who uses it also uses a usb mouse... they all say the same, i tried new mouse drivers, updating the drivers, uninstalling the drivers... nothing works... i cant believe hp would not notice something like this!

This definitely does have wifi capability. Here's HP's official page of drivers for Windows 7 Home Premium. http://goo.gl/vm54T

Should run just fine. Sims 3 isn't a very demanding game.

WoW will run on a AMD Athlon XP 1600+ and a 64 mb PCI video card on low settings. I can play it on a netbook just fine.
