And how well will it run it?
Some guy in the link you quoted said he was running Battlefield 3 on high, so I think you'll do ok.
Edit: Nvidia GeForce GT 740M graphics card with 2048MB dedicated video memory * yep.

According to the above, the 740m can handle D3.
From the above review, there are a few concerns.
-The 740m in that laptop is the absolute weakest version offered.
64-bit memory interface and DDR3 instead of GDDR5.
You may need to bump down to High detail instead of Ultra to maintain playable minimum frame rates.
-The Hard disk in that is large, but not fast. 5400rpm with no caching SSD.
You might want to look into adding an SSD, if budget allows.
(the review says there is an empty HDD bay, but you will need to purchase a caddy and cable)
-The processor in that model is an i5 which is a step down from the review model and most of the laptops tested for the 740m on that site. This doesn't mean it won't work for D3, just that it won't be quite as much performance. Again, likely you need to accept High settings instead of Ultra if you want to maintain a minimum of 30fps.
All in all it will likely do the job, just not optimally for that price range.
As an example, Lenovo's Y410 or Y510 will feature a 750m and a full quad-core i7 in that price range.
Its not true!
I run all my games in my Desktop with win8, 16 games total, and blizzard games running smoth with it. And I think win8 is even better than win7.
Op, that notebook should run D3 fine.
