CPU is actually i5-6198DU, but I couldn't find it in the list, i5-6200U was the closest thing to it, it is Dual Core with 2.3 Ghz

Max settings and constantly above 60 fps. Your rig is way more powerful than the recommended specs.

Two of the greatest dispappointments of my life came from this game. The horrible ending and the reveal of tali's face which was just a badly photoshopped image.

I used to play it on PS3. Multiplayer was fun but I stopped playing because none of my friends played it and the players I played with on the random lobies were horrible.

Your gfx is kinda holding you back. Anyways this game is really well optimized so i d say give a try. To my knowledge its gonna run smoothly but i don't wanna promise anything.I'd totally suggest trying though, it's a miracle of a game ;)

i think on low settings you would average about 35 fps that would range from 15 to 50 that would mean that the game would be playable it's worth checking out and giving a try tho, its a great game

Wait, you have Intel Core i7-4710HQ and Intel HD Graphics 4600, right ?
So, try at Medium settings,, just keep AA and Vsync off. Good luck ^_^

If your laptop was a gift, than it's good for you, I think, you can use dat laptop for anything, cuz it has a powerfull CPU mobile, but not in gaming, cuz today's games need a better GPU to run, :|
