I'd be surprised if you can max all the settings in F.E.A.R. on any 15.4" laptop - even the m5500. What screen resolution are you planning on getting? You'll be much better off with the lower res screen - and will be able to turn up more features at native resolution.
I can max pretty much everything on my desktop (FX-55, 2x7800GTX), but it is still a demanding game. You should still be able to play it with reasonable settings on the m5550 and enjoy it. Maybe someone who has recently received one will let us know how it does.
