Windows 7: Will this laptop run GTA IV?

Intel GMA with HD graphics card.

No, it won't even at low settings, the game might not ever run at all, integrated graphics such as the GMA series are very poor at processing huge amounts of texture.
Forget about gaming on such a laptop, no modern games will ever run at a reasonable performance
Any card using shared memory is useless for gaming

But if you want to do some gaming get a laptop with dedicated graphics

Check this just to get an idea of how bad it is

Are there any laptops you would recommend for GTA IV for under 500?

Nope. Only desktops will be able to play GTA 4 decently with that price range.

On youtube I saw someone playing GTA IV and their laptop was a Packard Bell Easy Note TJ65? I just took a look at it and it looked quite good and ran quite well...

GTA 4 runs fine on my laptop on ALL high settings, just no shadows, as that kills it for me. I could have it on, but would have to reduce texture quality, view distance, ect.

Dude, that laptop (Packard Bell Easy Note TJ65) is much worser than the laptop you are thinking of getting. Its got Intel graphics, and a Pentium CPU. Show me the vid plz. Also, just so you know, the Intel HD 3000 graphics are better than the 410M. Sandy Bridge CPU's only.

A gaming laptop will usually cost more than 1000USD, save your money and get a desktop instead.
The Nvidia GF315M 1 GB will only run most games at low settings http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-...M.41529.0.html
Don't expect any heavy gaming on an i3 CPU
