I know this was a while ago but...
The 700m is not really designed with playing the newer games, like Sid Meier's Pirates, in mind. This laptop is ment for office and media (DVD watching) type applications. I would be suprised if the Intel Video Chipset is supported by that game. I am not sure what type of DirectX support the video card has. Even if it was supported, I would not expect great performance out of it when playing the newer games.
Not trying to discredit the 700m. I just bought one myself. It is a great latop, especially considering it is in the ultra-portable class of laptops. This class has never been known for gaming ability. I knew when I bought it though games were out. Doesn't matter anyway since I am running Linux on it.
