All of the guides I have looked at mention that you should get armor penetration runes for magic users. But coming from a WoW background this confuses me a little. If I get a magic user, such as evelyn or morgana, then why do I need armor penetration? Wouldnt it make more sense to get magic penetration?

The guides you've seen are probably slightly outdated. Magic penetration used to be a primary for blue runes, not red. There really wasn't any red primary that was very useful for ability spammers.

Armor penetration would help auto attack so last hitting is a little easier. That's not awfully bad since the weak attack makes last hitting with some casters quite difficult compared to other champions.
