It will run... VERY CRAPPYILY. You'll have to run it at a resolution of... 800x600 and with meh graphics. Seriously, go with a desktop. I'll pick all the components for you...

Here are the specs:
Intel® CoreTM i3-2310M 2.10GHz
Genuine Windows® 7 Home Premium
English (QWERTY)
NVIDIA® GeForce® 410M GPU 1GB
500 GB Serial ATA (5400 rpm)
4 GB 1333MHz DDR3-SDRAM
im new here
Yes, that would work a LOT better than the Intel graphics chip. Dedicated cards are want you preferbly want. Again though, it's not going to be at the uber super duper best, but you're in the arena of decent settings.

Some people here will say gaming on laptops is just posh, use a desktop, but I've gamed on laptops for some years now. Mobile technology has gotten to the point where a laptop can take over or give a mid-range desktop a run for its money.

I game on my laptop (system specs), and got the laptop before I knew much about graphics cards and the like. But seriously, laptop giving desktops a run for their money? No way in hell lol, for 500 pounds, a laptop would not do much in gaming, but 500 pounds put into a desktop will yield MUCH better results, so your argument is invalid.

Yeah, there is a slight way in hell that can. I've seen a 600 dollar laptop have almost similar capabilities of a desktop that costs about 7-800 dollars. Of course, a dedicated card on the desktop of decent quality will outdo a laptop any day. I'm just saying a laptop of decent specs and dedicated mobile card can do quite a bit.

I'm talking about custom-built, not pre-built desktops, versus a laptop.

Do you recommend any DESKTOP computers?

I recommend making the desktop yourself, by buying all the components and putting it together. Think of it as a jigsaw puzzle, its really pretty easy when you think about it. Its much cheaper and you get a much better bang for buck than buying pre-built desktops.
