Don't be too surprised, it's a badly ported game. It wouldn't work too well with even high end machines.
Try reducing texture to 'low', detail distance to maybe 5-10 along with draw distance. Turn shadows to low too if it's still unplayable (It will reduce a lot of eye candy).
Also, apply the latest patch for the game.

There are a lot of notebooks out with good specs that don't work well with games try what Gman suggested and see if it helps any and good luck.

You should probably try running if lower setting
lower the texturing distance , resolution , texture an all it should run smoothly then

Actually GTA 4 did run quite well on my Lenovo Y470 (i5-2410m & GT 550m @ 1366x768). It's been awhile, but I believe I had it on medium quality settings. The only issue I had is that it made my laptop run real hot.

I would update GTA 4 with patches. I think I patched it to 1.04 if I remember correctly. You might want to update graphic drivers. Last resort is a clean install of Win 7.

Try installing the 1.0.4.0 patch and look up some gta iv command lines on YouTube, you should see a boost in performance.

Laptops, even the expensive ones, are generally awful at gaming.
