Hi guys, Im looking to buy a new notebook, but I dont want to invest my money in a computer that i will have to upgrade soon.
I´ve been looking some computers and I think this one is a good option, but I would like that someone that really knows about this tell me if this one it´s good.Here are the specifications:

Processor Intel® Core™ i5-450M Processor1 2.4GHz with Turbo Boost2 Technology up to 2.66GHz (3MB L3 Cache)10
Operating System Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium (64-bit)11
Memory 4096MB DDR3 Dual-Channel 1066MHz Memory12
Hard Drive 500GB 5400RPM SATA hard drive4
Chassis Chassis with NVIDIA® GeForce® GT 330M with NVIDIA® Optimus™ technology up to 4091MB of TurboCache™ supporting Microsoft® DirectX® 10.1 and Mobile Intel® HM55 Express Chipset12
Wireless Network 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™6
Battery Life Up to 6-hours7

How good this one would run the starcraft 2, and how good would it run it?

Hello and welcome to the forums
GT 330M is a mid-range card so it can handle SC2 on medium settings(or some on high) on a resolution like 1024x768

Cards like HD 5870M/5850M or Nvidia GTX 480M are currently the best for gaming.
