Did you catch the lines about pre-installed productivity software? Yeah, like this thing is designed to do work! Even funnier is when you read the next line where is says no entertainment software is pre-installed! Is that an intentional burn or just an oversight?
So, aside from the designs on the laptop what makes this is a World of Warcraft system?
- Golden Ticket for a custom FigurePrint of your in-game World of Warcraft character.
- World of Warcraft Beta Club Card, granting access to future beta tests.
- Collector's Edition Account Upgrade Certificate, allowing access to previously exclusive pets.
- Original desktop background artwork and screensavers.
- Warcraft-themed backpack, t-shirt and mouse pad.
- World of Warcraft Expansion: The Burning Crusade.
Funny how they include a mouse pad for a laptop computer. I guess you can add one on later.
If you take your World of Warcraft seriously would you want to be seen playing the game on anything less than this?
