To prove that this is real (and not a fragment of my imagination), here's a couple of pictures. As I said, it's new in box, never opened.

I'm tempted, but is that video hardware any good for gaming?  Do you think that I will be able to play Diablo 3 when it is released?

The Intel HD 3000 is the new integrated graphics in the Sandy Bridge chipset. It's performance is roughly equivalent (but slightly inferior) to the Nvidia 320M. The i5 CPU does make a huge difference for any games that rely on CPU performance (the 320M only shows up on Core 2 Duo notebooks). I am confident that it will be able to handle Diablo III - Blizzard has never made their games overly demanding.

But it *is* integrated graphics; it's performance won't hold a candle to a discrete GPU.

Here's a section on the Intel HD 3000 in Anandtech's review of the Sandy Bridge chipset: Mobile Sandy Bridge Gaming Performance (Anandtech)

For what it's worth, the guy at Rock Paper Shotgun said he played the new Warhammer 40K: Space Marine demo on a laptop with the Intel HD 3000 chipset and it ran pretty well and looked good with some settings turned down.  Here is the article, with this comment towards the bottom:

(Also, I can attest to this running remarkably well on Intel’s HD 3000 integrated graphics. Which is something of a relief, as I just bought a laptop which has that. Couldn’t whack everything up to max and don’t think it made 60FPS, but I was genuinely surprised by how good it looked and smooth it ran. A new age!)
