    The processor should run your game just fine. However, I'm not sure about that integrated Graphics that you have.

    As Rit pointed out your integrated GPU is going to be giving you the biggest issues. You'll probably have to play on a low setting for acceptable frames.

    This might help a bit

    Also if you have the laptop already why not just benchmark it yourself? Best way to see what works for ya :) . If you are looking at buying a laptop with those specs I'd recommend getting something more current from this generation.
