Can a laptop with an i3 processor run Fallout New Vegas at an unlaggy framerate?

I'm kinda worried about it. It can run The Sims 3 (which apparently isn't that impressive), but I'd like to know if it can run it before I buy it on Steam or something.

How do I check my specs on my laptop? I know it has an i3 processor, but that's all I remember. It's a Windows 8 laptop, btw.

Depends on the GPU.

Apparently it's an Intel HD Graphics 4000. It also has 6GB of RAM (5 point something usable though). Should I be okay?

Checked around, It looks like it can handle Fallout 3 and New Vegas at around Low to Medium Settings. Don't take my word for it though.

Wait, really? Any way to double check before I buy it?

Edit, see you got it. There's no demo, but you can check out vids like this on YouTube http://m.youtube.com/watch?v=T8OuW4Jctqo
Seems like you can run it okay on low/med, probably better depending on which i3 that is.

I posted the specs in the topic on the Nonstop Gaming board. Are you tracking it?

Google is a thing.

I would just like to point out that the bottleneck would be the onboard GPU.

You should factor in your screen resolution too when checking if you can run something. New Vegas should be fine on lowest settings on that system as long as you aren't planning to run it at 1920x1080 and higher.

What resolution can I run it on/what's lower than what you listed?
