For a laptop, that's pretty capable. You should be able to run SL at ultra (with shadows, depth of field) with a reasonable framerate of between 15 and 45 frames-per-second.

For the remainder of the system, laptop audio is rarely high-quality, and your hard disk read/write speed will be showing its age fairly quickly. Not sure how they apply for your computer use generally.

Heat issues are always present on integrated graphic sets, to I recommend buying a cooling mat as well.

unless you really need a new laptop uprading your graphics card and vga drivers should cure the crashing the spec on the hp will more than manage to run SL one thing though i have used a HP laptop with SL and some of the SL keyboard shortcuts are overriden by hp features i don't know if this applies to all hp's though one that really sticks out is the alt gr + arrow keys that should be cam panning changes the orientation of the screen
