Hi, welcome to the forums. I Bought a Gateway back in Dec for just light stuff with an i3 and 6 Gb of memory and the on board Intel HD3000 Graphics (integrated with the processor ). I installed Oblivion on that thing and it did fine on medium settings. WoW shouldn't be all that bad. Don't know about Diablo, but I don't think so.
Gateway FX6800-01e----Intel Core i7 960 ( 3.2 GHz)---- Seagate Barracuda 750 Gb SATA II / 3.0 Hdd---- 6 Gb Crucial 1066 Mhz memory, running in Tri Channel conf-----Corsair TX650w PSU----- EVGA Nvidia GTX 560Ti 1gb GDDR5 Vram ----DVD +/- RW / CD ,RAM/DL Optical drive w/ Label Flash-----Gateway TBGM-01 Motherboard.... Vista Home Premium 64 bit OS w/ SP2; Samsung Synch Master 2243BWX 22" Monitor.

The best suggestion here, is to find a machine running an AMD A6 or A8 processor, OR get an Intel i3 / i5 with a dedicated video card. Working from your requirements, you shouldn't need a powerful card. The Lenovo U400 is a great machine for light gaming and general use. It is very similar to a Mac Book pro 13, but only $730, and with dedicated graphics. Also worth mentioning is the Lenovo Z575. It is neither as powerful, or as nice looking, but it is $200 cheaper.
