Would I be able to run WOW or GW on this laptop?

Thinking about getting a new laptop and looking at the Dell Latitude D620 (might be able to get a good deal on it). I'm curious if I can run World of Warcraft or Guild Wars at a decent rate.

Specs are:

Intel® Core™ Duo T2300E (1.66GHz) 667Mhz Dual Core
1.0GB, DDR2-533 SDRAM, 2 DIMMS

That all looks fine, but when it comes to the graphics card I get confused. It has a 256MB NVIDIA® Quadro NVS 110M TurboCache.

GW requires:
ATI Radeon 9000 or GeForce 4 Ti Series Video Card with 64MB of VRAM
512 MD RAM
Intel Pentium III 1GHz or equivalent

WOW requires:
Intel Pentium® III 800 MHz or AMD Athlon 800 MHz
512 MB or more of RAM
32 MB 3D graphics card with Hardware Transform and Lighting, such as NVIDIA® GeForce™ 2 class card or above

Quadro's are typically tuned for workstation applications like CAD or 3d Modeling and often lead to issues with gaming, from what i've seen. That may be something to worry about.
