I am looking for a laptop just for small games or so called indie games and just to screw around on. I already have a desktop that can run pretty much anything but I'm not home enough to use it so I'm looking for a descent laptop for some small games like Starbound, Planet Explorers, Project Zomboid, Kenshi, Gnomoria, Age of Empires II and Mount & Blade: Warband. I don't plan on running battlefield 4 or anything like that. My budget is up to 400 USD. Throw me some suggestions please! :) Looking for one with a good possessor.

Here are two that I have found but don't know if they are worth it http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=9SIA1J21AZ6504

It's hard to find a good gaming laptop for 400 usd, but the lenovo you found is more than enough for indie games. The HD 8450g can run Battlefield 4, Starcraft, Tomb raider on low settings with ~30-40 fps, not that you are playing these games but it was hard to find benchmarks for indie games.
The A6 cpu is not so good but if you only game and browse the web sometimes, it's good enough. (So no video editing/photoshop but you only use it for gaming) I think it's the best videocard + cpu you can get at this pricepoint (not sure but I couldn't find a new notebook for 400 usd that could beat this one)
It also has 4 gb ram, plenty for indie games, and Windows 7 (Most laptops have Windows 8 but I prefer W7)

If I click on the second link I get about 10 laptops, wich one do you mean?

Benchmark for the videocard (scroll down):

Benchmark for the CPU:

EDIT: Forgot the CPU benchmark
