Eagercadet,
Hard to say for sure, but it will probably work fine.

It meets the 'recommended' OS and memory requirements. And here's a comparison of the processor in that laptop vs. a low-end 'Recommended' processor, which looks fine. Because the Celeron has a built-in video processor though, I'm not sure on that piece. The Celeron is designed for low power consumption so I would I never recommend it for serious gaming. But the graphic requirements on MTGO aren't exactly high-end, so it should be fine.

Either way, enjoy Oz and draw well!

I'm currently running an i7-3615QM @ 2.3GHz which is a lot better than the CPU you've got and I can't consistently hit 60fps in League. Granted, mtgo isn't exactly super complex, but I hear it's poorly optimized. Haven't had experience with it myself.
