Is this any good for taking to Uni?

I set myself a budget of £400, and this meets that without an OS. I've searched alot and haven't found anything as cheap. I just wanna know how good the graphics are, on the pictures it's running starcraft 2...so I presume it's pretty good. But I don't know novatech that well, so it's a gamble. Any help?

The pictures of it running Starcraft 2 will just be Photoshopped sales images. An i3 integrated GPU won't manage Starcraft 2 on much above low settings in a playable fashion.

CPU benchmarks.

GPU benchmarks - including Starcraft 2.

Starcraft 2 should easily run on 1366x768 with mixed low/meduim details on i3 2310m with built-in GPU
