Would this computer work well?

Hey, guys. My Macbook Pro crashed on me, and I’m looking for a new laptop. I’m considering the following one:


I’d like to know how well this would run Blender, mostly the animation playbacks in the viewport and rendering time. It’s an i5 processor, though apparently only the i5 7xx models have quad cores. Anyway, let me know what you think. If you have any better suggestions, PLEASE let me know (budget is about $800). Thanks!

Hmm… a refurbished old pavilion?

I don’t think you want that. The main problem I see is that the video card is intel graphics. You need either an ATI or nVidia graphics card for reasonable redraw times.
