I really wanna know what games i can run with my specs...

Intel HD 4000 2.30ghz processor and 4gb ram...
the games i wanna be able to play are -

far cry 3, COD Black ops 2 or the first one, Need for speed shift, Skyrim, Star wars battlefront 2 and any of the halo games??? thanks guys/girls

not really. the hd 4000 will play games at reduced settings but is very quickly being left behind as minimum spec... better to get a dedicated gpu for high end gaming. for browser games and basic angry birds its more than enough but its just not good enough to play bf3 at competitive rez and settings.

CE requires no Internet connection, the same should go for 2 as well.

@ 1366X768 resolution I know that Mass Effect 3, and Fallout 3 will run on low or a mix of low/medium on an Intel HD 3000 (laptop). It also handled Cities XL 2012 pretty well, but I don't think that's your type of game.

I can handle ME3 with shadows and AA on with a mobile HD3000 with an i3- 2310M, it makes it a little slower (1-4FPS) but is still kinda playable, it should perform better on the mobile HD4000.

I'm not sure about the other games, but I can confirm that Skyrim runs smooth (above 30 FPS) on medium settings at 1280x720 on an Intel HD Graphics 3000 equipped laptop. You have Intel HD Graphics 4000, which should be at least 30-50% better, so you should be able to play it just fine, too.
