Is this laptop any good?

Hello everyone!
I'm looking to buy myself a laptop. I'm not much of a gamer but i want to play SC2 and D3 when they arrive. I understand that it's hard to determine what kind of computer is needed for these games since they haven't been released yet but maybe it's possible to estimate?
I have been looking around and found this one for a good price, since i live in sweden it's pretty expensive with computers.
What do you think about this one?

  2. I think that's too high of a price for a MCP79D as it uses a GeForce GT 120M.. You can find better deals than that!
