based on the Cheif Architect website this laptop wouldn't come close to the minimum requirements, and is very far from the recommended ones. You'll have to invest in a fairly powerful PC / laptop with a more powerful processor and a dedicated high performance video card from ATI or Nvidia to run that software well.

See http://www.chiefarchitect.com/products/sysreq.html for exactly what you'll need.
