You have more than my old laptop?
I have this Lenovo Y530 w/ an Intel 4500MHD video so it does have HDMI so that's nice enough to play HD with VLC PLAYER.
You seem to have same amount of RAM, similar CPU power and a semi-dedicated GPU so it should be fine.
My OS is the Lenovo supplied OS so there is no issue with drivers.
And if you are going to want to search out a video card, try that ATI 5450 1GB card for about 32 bucks.
