basically im running a vista laptop with the following spec-

core 2 2x2.0ghz
2gb ram
Geforce Go7300 256mb dedicated

i wouldnt normally need to ask but some reviews are saying its quite demanding and its always a bit different getting it to run on a mobile graphics card so do we think it will run?

cheers :thumbsup:
