Hi Chris, Lumion mainly uses the graphics card for rendering images/movies, and with just 489 PassMark points, your card is unfortunately not a great match for Lumion:http://www.videocardbenchmark.net/gpu.php?gpu=GeForce+GT+330M
However, the only way to find out for sure is to download Lumion Free
and import your SketchUp models. For comparison, on my MacBook Pro which ships with an Nvidia 320M card, the graphics card driver crashes when I try to render images/movies. Your MacBook is slightly newer though, so perhaps you'll have more luck.
We recommend using Lumion in a Windows 7 64-bit environment. The 32-bit version of Lumion only lets applications use 3.5Gb ram, whereas the 64-bit version doesn't have that restriction. Windows 7 is also a lot more stable than previous versions of Windows, and if the graphics card driver does crash, Windows 7 is usually able to recover without problems.
