It should. The graphics are wonderful, but it's no BF3.

Blizzard's stuff usually scales down nicely. Think of all the shitty computers running WoW.

Tell us more. How's the gameplay? What are the questlines like? What's the multiplayer? Howabout the skill trees? Is it just a graphically updated D2?

It's a very beta. Just a linear section of story quests, you can run it in about 90 minutes with a new character. When you "beat the beta", exit from the game, and come back, it starts you at the beginning again. Though you pick up a Templar hireling that starts over again with you. You can equip him with two rings, a javelin, and a shield, and pick a couple skills he can use. Level cap is 13.

Multiplayer isn't much different. You can't use a hireling with others. You only see your own loot, not other player's.

There aren't skill trees. You just unlock new skills to pick from every level. You also get to choose from "passive skills" after level 10.

It's more than just a graphically updated D2. They've obviously spent a lot of time and effort into the presentation--it looks fantastic. A lot of things are "destructible", but only in an aesthetic sense. You can bust down a piece of cement railing with a powerful skill blast. Really lends to the impact of skills. And all the classes feel sufficiently powerful, which is very nice.

Super cool - what do you mean you only see your own loot?

And interesting, so unlocking new skills kind of works like Zerg and Protoss research points in SC2 single player?

You start out being able to "equip" skills to two "skill slots". But you only start with two skills, so those are the ones you have equipped.
As you level up, skills unlock and the number of skill slots grows (up to six). There are also up to three passive skill slots.

Check out this calculator to see how it works: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/barbarian

The go-to spell for Wizards in the beta is Electrocute. So easy to spam, is rapid-fire, and can take down a large mob in good time.
Shock pulse, on the other hand, is total shit... but who knows, maybe it'll be better socketed. No runestones in beta.

Dopeness. Can you unsocket a spell once it's been socketed?

This is a totally new system...
