I'm looking for a laptop that will run SC2 on medium at 1366x768.
I was looking at this one "Toshiba Satellite A665D-S6051" and I don't know if the graphics would be enough to run it smooth.

ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250 Graphics
AMD Phenom II Quad Core Mobile P920 Processor
4GB DDR3 ram
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit

I don't have alot of money for a laptop so any ideas would be nice.

You'll probably want something with a bit more graphics power to run it smoothly. Fill out the FAQ thread at the top of the forum and we can find you something that will work.
