Laptop recommendation

So the high-end gaming laptop kind of flamed out. Besides, I got my desktop up and running again so I'm happy.

I have a question about running C&C: The First Decade/Battlefield 1942/SimCity4 & The Sims 1 & 2 with the expansions. Could I run those on a laptop with, say Intel's HD Graphics 3000 or 4000? I realize they are integrated graphics and probably wouldn't seem as powerful, but I'm looking for more...all-around performance. I know that really doesn't make sense...I really can't find the term I'm looking for. Sorry.

All of those games that you listed should run "okay" on an HD4000 IGP. Not terrific but playable

So I should look for something moderately powerful if I would like full speed then?

Like a GTX460m?

the best cheap gaming laptop available is AMD A8-3520M but you can buy AMD A10-4600 for almost the same price next month also those AMD laptop CPUs are more efficient for gaming

I found a laptop with an A8-3520m that has a Radeon HD 6620G. I'm sure I can do better.

Why I brought up the GTX460m is the fact that there's an ASUS laptop with an i7 but it's like 1200 at Best Buy. I can get it, but I have other things I need to get also.
