That should be able to play fine. You may have to drop a few heavier settings down (EG: Shadows), however it should certainly play smoothly at medium settings :-)

Ive got a

2.4ghz i7
4gb ram
and a 1gb Nvidia GT230M

And I can run the game on low settings, it runs "ok" its not smooth and busy areas can be a bit stuttery. Anything of similar spec but with a better gfx card will play this game perfectly fine.

Scaling graphics will depend on your gfx card.

ps battery life - playing a game even with a top battery will only last about 30-45 minutes. Second you use the dedicated gfx to play a game it cuts battery life by about 75%

GeForce® GT 540M supports DirectX 10, if you got one with GeForce® GT 560M that supports DirectX 11 would give a nice boost
