Most adventure games doesn’t really require much of the graphics card, so I would guess most would run well. But it is only a guess!

I think you’ll have trouble with L.A. Noire and The Testament of Sherlock Holmes. Everything else, however, will most likely not be a problem.
Can’t say for sure, though, I’m not that well-versed in the differences between desktop and laptop PCs…

     

Now playing: Blade Runner (post-CPT) | The Witcher: Enhance Edition (on hold) | Danganronpa: Trigger Happy Havoc (on hold) | Professor Layton and the Azran Legacy (3DS)

I just got a Netbook to play games on and it is approx. What you have. Desktop PCs and Laptops are similar - it is just laptops are less powerful and tend to use integrated graphics chips instead of cards.

The fact that 70% of PC sales are laptops means that games will run on them now.

I was a dedicated Nintendo DS gamer for many years and just got back into PC gaming. I bought 20 (with another 30 still to buy) adventure games for the PC from half-price books - all of them ran and some of them were recently released (Haunted, Gray Matter).

What YOU want is exact recommendations - here U are:

Art of Murder: Cards of Destiny. I loved this game.

Still Life 2 - I loved this game - although not everyone.

Sherlock Holmes Nemesis - a solid PC adventure games.

NCIS - a great adventure game.

That sums it up.

I just booted “The Last Window” on my Nintendo 3DS - the Nintendo DS adventure games (I have 80 of them) are pure magic and I would not have spent 2004-2012 any other way.

I enjoy playing adventure games on handheld systems- PS VITA, Nintendo DS and ipad mini.

I can highly recommend Sinking Island, which is a classic who-dune-it with some twists, and a great game imo.

Also Cognition serial-murder game with a supernatural theme, and a game I really enjoyed, we are still waiting for the last episode though.

Sherlock Holmes vs Arsène Lupin (Also know as Nemesis) a quite difficult game if you like some challenges, and perhaps also the best in the Sherlock series. Sherlock Holmes vs. Jack the Ripper is also not bad, though not among my favourites.

Face Noir if you like a Noir setting then this might be right up your alley.

The Art of Murder series and Still Life 2 (Still Life 1 is from 2005), solid detective games though not among my personal favourites, but if you like detective games they are hard to ignore.

I seriously doubt you can play any of the above metnioned games since most AGs I own don’t work on Intel graphics. I know that because for a short while I had a laptop with an Intel grpahics card. Most of my games didn’t work at all and those that did had a lot of glitches as a result. You really need Nvidia or Ati Radeon to play games. Even adventure games. Those laptops cost a bit extra but you get your money’s worth.

Anyway on the off-chance they do work:

Overlocked
is a really good game.It’s not really a detective game in the traditional sense. More of a psychological thriller but you do get to investigate a crime so it qualifies in the respect. Amd it’s an absolutely wonderful game. Very rich in atmosphere with some of the best developed chracters I’ve seen in an adventure game.

Also let’s not forget The Raven that was just released. Haven’t played it yet but according to the review it’s a very decent game.

Edit:
Overlocked should be Overclocked. You probably won’t find it otherwise.

You might also want to check out (2010) Alter Ego. I can verify that it runs perfectly well on an el-cheapo Dell laptop with integrated HD graphics and Windows 8.

Face Noir I mentioned earlier is mafia related.

And I can also second Overclocked mentioned by gray piece, I just didn’t think of it as a detective game.
