Default Will it play though?

I've been looking around alot!

I'm wanting a laptop for college, now the problem is I'm also a little bit of a gamer. I've decided that I'm going to get a "decent" laptop and later on build a gaming pc.

My question is this: Will this system---

Toshiba
Intel Celeron M 390(1.7GHz)
512 DDR Memory
ATI Radeon Xpress X200M(64MB-128MB dynamically allocated shared graphics memory)

Run this game at a decent unlaggy speed?

Requirements for NWN: Hordes of the Underdark
Pentium III 800 MHz(Pentium 4 1.3GHz Recommended*)
256 MB Ram(512 MB Recommended for Windows XP*)
32 MB Video Card(64 MB Video Card Recommended*)

The game may lag a little bit. Reason:

Celeron 1.7Ghz - Celeron's are low-cache, budget processors, made for internet browsing, minor editing of photos/videos.

ATI Radeon Xpress 200M - Video chipset. Made for running Windows XP nicely, but not for any gaming, not even Need for Speed...

512MB RAM - Recommended for the game, which usually means minimum

Pentium III 800MHz
256 RAM
16 MB Video Card (Nvidia or ATI Radeon Recommended)

All of the recommended requirements are met though. Don't you think it'd play at a decent frame rate?

you can't get video cards for laptops. All they have are those PCMCIA ports (think that's it), and that's for a wireless network adapter or USB Ports.
