It would be bad. Basically the more powerful the iGPU the longer it will last you for playing games. That is why I recommended a laptop with the Intel HD 4400. The Intel HD 4000 is still fine since it is only about 20% - 25% less powerful than the Intel HD 4400.

The Celeron N2830 is an Atom CPU which is consumes very little power, but also has very low CPU and iGPU performance. The Intel HD (no model #) in that CPU is the weakest of all Intel HD graphic cores. Probably only as powerful as the GMA 4500HD from 2011 which was before Intel decided to focus on iGPUs capable of playing games.
