Got it for a work project seriously cheap (would be about 1200 eur with vat i guess). Now I ain't the one paying but isnt it someting fishy when that comp is so cheap?

Quadro FX 570 anyone got any gaming experience with that?

Quadro's aren't for gaming

Borwin if you read the review you linked it does actually have gaming benchmarks for the laptop. xP

DUH. I was so concerned about the quality of the screen so I read to that part then stopped. Thanks Night.

If you intend to game on a PC, make sure it has a game GPU, not a workstation GPU. While both have basically (or often totally) the same components, due to optimization, one will perform superior in games, while the other will do a lot better in professional applications (3D max etc), while the workstation card is always a -LOT- more expensive.

If you have no choice at all: I'm sure it will perform decent enough in WoW. 3700 marks is decent, but not impressive.
