    your laptop?

    Sony Vaio FW41M Notebook Core 2 Duo (P8700) 2.53GHz 4096MB (2x2048MB) 500GB 16.4 inch Full HD TFT Blu-Ray Drive LAN WLAN BT Vista Home Premium (Radeon HD 4650)

    if not, ignore below LOL

    it will run but how well i cant say.

    i ran it on my pc which has

    Intel E3300 dual core @2.5GHz which is slower than yours

    2gb ddr2 ram slower than yours

    hd 4770 graphics card, better than yours

    on the huge maps, after a while the game would stutter, but on the small to medium maps, the game would run fine, on highest settings.

    bear in mind, i had the game from new, and there is always glitches in newly released games. that are fixed now with the latest patch

    the canyourunit site can be unreliable.

    your processor is fine, looking here http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu_lookup.php?cpu=Int... its faster than some triple core AMD chips.

    4gb ram is fine

    HD4650 is the same as a 7900gs or a x1800xl, this meets the minimum required to run the game.

    the game will run, but you may have to turn the graphics settings to medium or low.

    also turning off "fog of war" and AA and AF, will give your laptop a huge boost.

    ace game by the way, buy it.

    or download the free 100 turn demo, to test your laptop first before you buy it.
