The page that links to has I think 9 laptops on it and only the over $1000 one has a discreet graphics processor and thats a Mobility 4650. Laptops just are not powerful enough for gaming at that price point.
The one good thing is thats an older game. I really am not sure how good it would run with onboard graphics though. Something with a discreet card would play it quite well.

I should have browsed more...lol I just looked at the ones on that page. The 250 is the replacement for my 9800GTX+ so yeah that 240 should be pretty good.

Good CPU, 4gb RAM and the 240gt should be great for the game you listed.

Both of the links you posted have periods at the end of them, you can't have that period otherwise the link doesn't work.

The desktop version GT240 supports DX10.1, so it isn't a direct copy of the 9800gt - but performance wise it should be the same. I'm assuming the laptop cards follow suit here.

Edit: Looked at anorts link, it's a copy of the 9700m. The 9800m should be just slightly faster.
