Yes and no. Depends on the laptop. Some OEM's artificially limit the TDP of the CPU so the GPU can't work as well as it should. Basically it will throttle. I have a Sony Vaio Pro 11 and Samsung Ativ Book 9, both with an i5-4200U and HD 4400 GPU. The Samsung works like a charm, no throttling whatsoever. The Sony on the other hand, it likes to throttle constantly, and it runs just as cool as the Samsung.

Wingnut, are you sure? My dad will give me an acer aspire e14. It has i5 4210u 1.6ghz and intel hd 4400. I'll play a game that needs nvidia gt 8800. Will it run smoothly? Because it does run smoothly on my desktop gt 430.

Yes, I'm sure. If you visit notebookreview.com forums (down this weekend unfortunately) you can see this discussed ad nauseum. Thin and light or netbooks are throttled so heat and power don't become an issue. Unfortunately you don't know what each laptop does until users actually test/stress them to find out the hard way.

Easiest way for you to get a good response is to post the game list you're thinking of playing. HD4400 is a capable card, for some games, but do you have a game in particular?

The U series of Intel CPU's come under clocked significantly to reduce power usage and have a native lower TDP when running multiple cores to reduce heat. Heat is the only thing that will throttle your CPU. Manufacturers do not throttle anything.
