I would think not.

While your CPU is powerful enough and you have 4gb of ram, your laptop doesn't have a graphics card (is using inbuilt graphics). Games are the main reason behind graphics card sales.

Unfortunately if you had a desktop I could point you towards a cheap graphics card but with laptops it isn't that simple. You'll have to speak with lenovo if you want to add a graphics card to see if it is possible.

There are threads (including a good stickied one) which details supported and unsupported graphics cards, you may look there to see if you can run D3 using inbuilt graphics. Or you could ask a friend who owns the game for a guest pass (which comes with the game). Either way if it does run it will look horrible and likely provide sub par gaming environment so I'd recommend looking at getting a gaming system (they are getting cheaper day by day).

Good luck,
Anyone who has played the game on a laptop can let me know if it is a viable platform to play this game?

Go Here: and check yourself.
i am using the same laptop at work EXCEPT mine runs at a 2ghz processor speed. the key is to run everything at the minimum AND switch to 800x600. it eorks very well for me and it doesnt look bad(not as good as my home system but it works good with low graphics). now granted, i've only gotten to the end of act 1 so far but i dont get much time to play. im guessing it will work fine through the whole game as i've come across 20-30 enemies at once without lagging
So Banshee you're saying your graphic card is an Intel HD Graphics as well?
I have Intel HD Graphics on my laptop. If you lower the resolution to 800x600 and run everything at minimum the game runs perfectly fine.
awesome, i have been fretting over this also,

i have a toshipa satellite A505
I3 processor
4gb ram
and Intel GMA HD
So it would appear the Intel HD Graphic card is sufficient to run the game at lowest settings.

Anybody else has the same graphic card who can confirm?
I am also running the Intel HD graphics family card in my lenovo laptop. I can confirm that the game runs perfectly well with lowest settings in 800x600 resolution. It isn't ideal playing situation with low graphics but it works well for when I am away from my desktop.
