I have just purchased a Dell 9300 for this purpose (6800go Graphics 1.86 P4 Mobile processor). Runs the sim very nicely at high resolutions. It replaced a HP laptop with Radeon 7500 graphics that ran G2 well.

You will need a laptop with a newish Graphics chip (Mobile Radeon X300 (Slow), 9700, x600, x700, x800 or nvidia 5700go(slow), 6600go, 6800go). I ran the sim on my mates mobile 9700 and it was just ok (I prefer frame rates 40 and above for 3d ) and would suggest x700 or go6600 as a minimum.

I too have the Dell 9300, very fast.
I can run HL2 and FarCry at max resolution, on highest detail at very playable framerates.

Highly recommended.
