    AMD APUs (accelerated processors) have their own graphics cores. My laptop is just like the one in the link but made by Lenovo and older graphics drivers. I easily play all of those games on 60fps. It's able to play Skyrim on medium at a playable FPS. Those APU laptops are the best laptops for gaming in terms of price and performance.. You may not even need an A10, A6 should do fine because it's still a quad-core, but most A6s come with only 4GB of RAM.

    The Intel integrated graphics aren't really as reliable as AMD integrated graphics for gaming. The laptop you gave has a i5-3230M processor ( worth over $600 ), which is has Intel HD Graphics 4000, the second I gave has AMD HD8400, which has a little less performance than my AMD 7660G. Compare their gaming benchmarks.... Intel 4000: http://www.notebookcheck.net/Intel-HD-Graphics-4000.69168.0.html and HD 7660 (HD8400 is new, so there has not been game benchmarks yet released): http://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-Radeon-HD-7660G.69830.0.html. Now the 8400 does not perform as well as the 7660G, but the 8650G (the first laptop) seems to out perform the 7660 a bit. The laptop I first gave will blow yours out of the water in gaming for a cheaper price of about £350. It's about £100 cheaper for %50 more performance. Now the i5-3230M is a faster processor, but the integrated graphics are not as fast as the A10 (probably performs %25-50 faster), so A10 would be the ideal choice for gaming.
