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?

• Processor & Cache Memory Intel® Core™2 Duo Processor T6670 2.20 GHz
• Operating System - Genuine Windows 7 Home Premium
• Chipset - NVIDIA MCP79D
• Main Memory - ( 2GB DDR3 1066MHz SDRAM ) x 2
• Display - 15.6" HD (1366 x 768)
• Video Graphics & Memory - NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 320M 1GB
• Hard Drive - SATA 500GB, 5400RPM
• Optical Drive - 12.7"mm, 8X Super Multi with DL

• Video Camera - 0.3 Mega Pixel web camera (Fixed type)

Btw, the price for this one is about 1028 USD

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!

Wait until March. Buy the lenovo y560p. It's brilliant, with about 5 hours of battery. only 850 dollars. and it has very capable specs.
