Laptops all suffer the asme issue, heat. Even if you meet specs if you play long or often you can expect some performance issues. Invest in an external cooling pad

I've been able to run this on my HP Pavillion DM1 notebook (E-450, 4GB of ram, and integrated Radeon HD 6320). So you shouldn't have any problems. Just don't run everything on full and you won't overheat, and Lag is primarily down to your connection, not your hardware (obviously excepting load times).

heres my experience. This game is one of the exceptions to the "graphics not needing to be awesome" rule, most of the time I dont need the best graphics, but STO does and here is why...first with low settings and resolution you lose some of the intricate details and the atmosphere gets polygonic of sorts. Almost hokey.Made things seem reduntdant and uninteresting to look at. Second the space is done very very well, with low graphics you lose some of the depth. When your turn the graphic settings up you'll see that the game has this new layer that is rather impressive and detailed. It makes what used to be bland more flavorful and exotic. You can still have fun either way, but in my opnion set the settings as high as you can get away with out losing playability to really experience this game fully. Otherwise netflix will have to do.

On the point of connection, go Ethernet over WiFi for best results consistantly.
