Sandy based laptops are worth looking into solely for the integrated GPU. It'll probably be more powerful than some of these mobility cards/chips.
What's going to be your biggest problem OP, is finding one with a half decent GPU. The 6370M for example, is a weak
card. Gameplay would be shit tbh. But if you found one with an older gen CPU, but beefier GPU - beefier GPU wins.
(Search for benchmarks etc with the exact GPU you'd be looking at. Then try and find it's desktop equivalent. This makes it easier culling duds.)
700 isn't a lot to go on when it it comes to decent game capable laptops. The titles you want to play will most likely have to be played at low/medium settings.
Of course whats acceptable to one, isn't acceptable to another.
(Once upon I time I considered 20-25fps 'playable'. Now I have PC's that can do 60FPS with max settings and find 20-25fps to be an intolerable slideshow now.)
Basically, you'll find a compromise because you have to. Does it need to be a laptop?
