Yes, any of those series NVIDIA will work well for SL.  However, I personally don't think you are getting the right bang for your dollars for a not so 'new' machine.

That being said, the i7 processor will deliver.  Graphics will be dependent on what card - i would select the ATI 5970.  It is what you should be paying for.

Because it is not on the official requirement's list doesn't mean it isn't working. What is important is, is that the GPU is listed in gpu_table.txt which you will find in the viewer's installation directory. And if it's not in that list, it can also be added manually so SL works with that GPU.

For NVIDIA cards higher number depicts newer cards - not necessarily faster cards. But that GPU IMHO should be able to run SL in at least high quality settings, although it's a mobile chipset version that is always slower as their desktop counterpart.

Hello Yosho. Recently i purchased a new laptop with GeForce GT 520M and it runs SL perfectly. To understand better the series 500M refreshed series 400M. Generally NVIDIA cards, especially new ones (series 400M presented in 2010) seems to run SL without problems. If it possible to find a laptop with series 500M is better more. On the other side i repeat that the series 400M is able to run SL very well.
