Just to put things in perspective, someone around here (I believe it was fm87) was able to get over 100FPS on an HD2000 (or 2500, can't remember which - the point is that they both suck).
That was an older version of the game at a lower resolution it was also on a desktop. Laptops have to worry about heat so they downclock often off their turbos.
The GPU also does not matter very much when it comes to MC as long as it supports the OpenGL versions and has semi speedy access to RAM it is fine.
FMs test IIRC was with a core 2 quad and a non release edition of the game.
Also if you are willing to have FPS drops most anything can do a good FPS while looking at something.
