Does anyone have hands-on experience with a PC that uses the "HD 2000 graphics"?

Run, don't walk, from Intel HD graphics.  You want a mid-range or better discrete graphics card.  Try Notebookcheck for detailed specs on mobile graphics.  Specs for the HD2000 are here.  From the big list, try to get  a Class 1 for best results, or a Class 2 for medium quality on a smaller screen.

According to the system requirements, SL will run on an Intel GMA 945, which is not as powerful as the HD2000, but it will be very slow and you will not get any better than minimum graphics.  It will also be prone to overheating, since SL is very demanding.  But while it is technically possible, I personally would not do it.  Please note that the system requirements is very badly out of date, but you can compare the listed GPUS to current models on Notebookcheck.

If you do get anything integrated, try running Rainbow Viewer.
