FPS issues on my brand new laptop
I would also make sure WoW is set to 1x Multisampling. Also, in windows, right click your desktop and goto Catalyst Control Center. Goto the 3D/Gaming section, make sure everything is set to Application Controlled and High Performance
6300 aka 6300M series.
Try with and without the 64 bit client. 64 bit client you'll find posted in tech support forums. Try directx 9 or 11 see what's best.
Make sure it's not a virus scanner or other running in the background scanning ever little wow file modified. Best to put wow folder on excluded. And yes it will slow the FPS down.
On laptop you also want to go in screensaver options. Under power options, switch it to performance. Under control panel device manager. Under drives. Click hard drive, Policies tab. Make sure a check is in Enable write caching for device.

They are on the older laptops and yet I got a better fps out of it than my brand new laptop? Both laptops aren't even designed for gaming either so...I just don't get it really.
Because your old computer had a processor that would pick up the slack from the poor graphics card. Your new lap top has a 2 core 1.3 gig APU. APU's run everything well except games. If you look at the load while running wow its going to be at or near 100 percent for both cores. This laptop barley meets the minimum requirements for wow. Its not going to run it well period. And it does not meet the recommended specs. You can ask for help all day long but no one is going to make it run wow well. Like i said it designed to browse the internet, watch movies do a little word processing. play farm ville and do some face book. Your biggest problem with it is a 1.3 gig duel core APU. E and C series APU's do not preform as well as even older processors like the Pentium D or the AMD X2 64 both of which have almost twice the performance of a E series APU. The bare minimum APU for even considering playing games on is a A series. sorry could not find a direct link for a e-300 look down from the highlighted one. The two recomended will still not run wow great but it would be playable ie you could raid,quest excetra without any significant problems and are significanly higher in preformance then the e300 apu
Here is the bench mark for your processor
E300 apu- 591
Bench mark for the minimum to run wow
Here is the benchmark for recomended processors
pentium D- 741
AMD x2 64- 785
