Intel® HD Graphics 4000
I can confirm that this is an error specifically with this card. I also have the Intel HD 4000 and am having the same error.

That's definitely too weak for MC. My mother has that Chip on her Laptop and MC was laggy as heck on it. If you're using a PC, try to get a proper Graphic Card. (I for example use the Nvidia GT 240, which is still not a really good card but it works fine with MC on "not uber" graphic settings ^^)
While you're right that any other card on the market is better than the stock Intel one, this one is still very decent considering Intel's past GPU attempts. Your mother might have had a similarly named card, but the one being referred to here is able to run Minecraft on max settings with vanilla, as far as my experience with it goes, without any problems at all.
