Will my laptop run ultra settings on Skyrim?

I realize this question probably gets asked a lot, but I'd kinda like to know what settings I could run Skyrim on before I buy the game. I already have it on console, but I'm trying to jump into PC gaming lately, so any answers are appreciated!

Specs:

Processor: Intel Core i7-4700MQ
Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GT755M
RAM: 8 gb

    Yes, it will. I have a computer with a Core 2 Duo CPU and an R7 260x. It runs Ultra, with antialiasing on, 100% smoothly.
  2. Sweet! Thank you! I guess I'll just have to buy it now!

    Your R7 260X is much stronger than the GT 755M.
    The GT 755M is more comparable to an R7 250 or GT 740.

    No, it won't run ultra at playable (30+) framerates.

    I should have mentioned this in the original post, but my laptop has the option to replace the optical drive with a second 755M, so I will be doing that in the relatively near future. So it should theoretically still be good enough.
  5. Well, imo, it will run Skyrim at 30+ fps on Ultra with 8x AA. Probably capped 60fps indoors. But not on 1080p. On 720p, yes. I have a Radeon HD 8850m + I5 4200u and 8gb ram, and I run at max settings 30+ fps outside, and 60fps capped indoors at 1366x768 resolution. So yours should be about the same.

    The processor will make up for it, trust me.
