MacBook Pro + StarCraft 2

Hello, I'm thinking about buying a MacBook Pro 15". The Specs are:

2.4GHz Intel Core i5 processor

320GB 5400-rpm hard drive

Intel HD Graphics

NVIDIA GeForce GT 330M graphics processor with 256MB GDDR3 memory.

1. I was wondering how well SCII could be play on this MBP?
2. I also see two different types of graphic in the spec, the "Intel HD" and the "Nvidia 330m". So does that mean it have two graphic cards at 256mb VRAM each or share?
3. Is it possible to get a more VRAM?
4. Is there such thing as an "EXTERNAL video card"

Thanks in advance!

Hello and welcome to the forums
1_Yes on medium settings
2_No,GT 330M is the discrete card,where as Intel HD is an integrated card, you can switch between them.Use GT 330M when you are gaming or doing tasks which require more GPU power, and you can use the Intel HD when you are doing normal tasks or want more battery life
4_Yes,but its not for gaming(its used for an external display)
