This is odd as I have a core i7 680um with 8gigs ram and a vertex 4 SSD and I am barely able to play SWTOR with all options turned off/low/verylow in a window at 1024/768! Running driver: 126.96.36.1999 on Acer Aspire TimelineX 1830t. The Intel GM control panel reports video bios as: 1994.0.
I had expected better performance from this system (even though it is not a gamer system).
Any ideas why it is running so slowly?
The Intel GMA HD (which I think is the GPU for your laptop) is at the min requirements for the game so it will struggle.
The HD3000 was a big step from previous Intel graphics (and the 4000 kind of supercedes the entry graphics market).
