That one works too, but note that it is refurbished.

Lenovo is formerly IBM's notebook division, it's a pretty big name brand

Refurbished laptops can be a hit and a miss moreso than a new one. Sometimes , you get a near-flawless new-like laptop. Sometimes you get one that's full of gunk (cosmetically), but sold to you as it is anyway since it works fine.

If you need to buy a laptop in person, I bought a HP Dv6 from Best Buy for right around $550. 15.6" with the AMD A8-3520M, 6GB of 1333mhz DDR3 RAM, 640GB HDD. Run's D3 on max settings pretty well. I hooked up to the TV and ran D3 with full settings at 1920x1080 just fine also.

No, do not get a laptop with Intel HD graphics. Integrated graphics will give you slideshow fps.
