It mainly depends on the graphics chip. What graphics chip does the laptop have?

If it's a laptop with an i3, then the answer is no. Laptop = no, i3 = no, so laptop+i3 = no^2 :P

I dunno. You can get a nice lappy with the i3, 4GB - 8GB of memory, and a HD4570 graphics card.

i3 mobile and desktop both have Intel's Integrated HD graphics (Also known as IGMAHD) It's about the equivalent of a Nvidia GeForce 9400GT.

Some I3 laptops will have integrated - IGMAHD. Some will have their own dedicated GPU's. IGMAHD runs off of system memory only, not L2

The laptop I described is from Dell. HP has one with an available GeForce GT 320M.

I'm aware, having played it on my rig in XP. I was just stating approximately what the GT320 is. A GT220, which is a 9500GT/9600GT.

Thanks for the reply's,

I think i will rethink about buying a laptop and just stick with buying a desktop. Faster and cheaper.

Thanks,
