Will Portal 2 work on my computer?

I know it says Dual Core 2.0 and above, but I was going to run it on the lowest settings. I have an Acer Aspire 5734z with an Intel Pentium Dual-Core T4500 processor. I don't mind if the game runs with a little framerate issues here and there, as long as it runs smoothly most of the time. Portal 2 is something I really want, but I don't want to spend $60 to find out that it doesn't run on my computer.

    For recommended system requirements, until now, there is still no information. Maybe, if your PC specifications at least as above, I am sure you will be able to play Portal 2. If you want to play with high resolution and high settings, it is advisable to use a higher video cards, the GeForce GTS 250 or GeForce 9800 GT seems to be the right choice.
