See the wiki for a list of known good laptops:

Intel HD graphics is unsupported by ML, you need at least hd3000 afaik. Ultimately you have no way of guaranteeing its going to work you can just make sure it has supported components and hope.

looks good to me

 

Im guessing it's just the "Integrated" graphics that are not supported right?

 

The intel HD 3000 and 4000 series are different?
