It should run SL at mid to, maybe, high setting........but keep shadows disabled and your draw distance reasonable (256 meters is going to give your card some fits).  The only other bit of caution I have is that on the CPU graphics chipset.  I seems all laptops are coming out with the CPU graphics chipsets built into them.........a battery saving feature.  The CPU is supposed to sense when higher graphics demands are in order and automatically switch from the on CPU graphics to the discreete card.  I hear way too many reports that the auto-switching doesn't take place all the time..........especially with OpenGL rendering programs like SL.  The problem may have been addressed by the chip makers but it's something to think about............the 3500M won't run SL well at all (that's if even will run).

 

Your discreete card is an entry level gaming card.....not a very high performing card.
