I think it will mostly run at that resolution, but you will certainly need to tone down the details a little bit, probably. You will also have to check how fast your laptop will become hot when under stress, because that might give some choppy gameplay when running at high temps.

I wouldalso go down the Ps3 version route instead of gaming on a laptop - despite all the claims manufacturers make laptop's are not best suitd to gaming. They have to make compromises due to the size of the casing - this in turn has a ngeative effect on heat generated and in turn performance.

Pluse if BF3 turns out to be a turkey like BF2 then selling a blu-ray PS3 disc is easier than selling used PC games

1366x768 is above 720p and it should run it and the laptop will not overheat to a point where it will do harm. that cpu can take temps up to 100*c and people from desktop background dont normally understand that and still say that that is way to hot.

Honestly, the 330m is a fairly low end gpu, the game would probably play and look better on ps3 for you
