would doubling my ram from 2gigs to 4 make this game possibly playable on my laptop? these are my current system specs and I was going to upgrade the ram later this year anyway to make softimage, maya and zbrush run better but if doing it now will make it so that I can play this game at more than 4 fps I am thinking about doing it right away.

It would help yes. However while your processor meets the min requirements, don't be fooled by that video card. Laptop cards suck and I think you'd benefit even more if you upgraded that too.

GTX 280M performs like a desktop 9800GTX whereas GTX 260M performs like a desktop 9800GT,so they are not like their desktop brothers. Between GTX 260M and Mobility HD 4650,GTX 260M performs way better and is worth the extra money.

I have a 9800GT (not gtx) in my lenovo desktop with a dual core (not even core2duo) and I score a 2500 on 720. It's playable.

Hope that helps.
