I have a probook 4410s... It fell and then after few months fan failed. So I removed and saw that the mould thingy which holds screws in place broke off. The keyboard comes off if I pull hard

But mine is an old model
In other laptops , the display might have broke as well as the body of the laptop too.
I never owned one of these , but felt that they are built better than an average mainstream notebook.

HD4000 may be weak but Trinity processing power is even more low so decide if you want to sacrifice more processing power for slightly better GPU.

yet to use any HD4000 based laptop but i can play low system requirement games even on power saver mode with A6 4400M without any lag but some softwares take time to start up. i am using HP 4445S.

Seeing your usage I'd recommend to go for an i3 based laptop with HD4000 graphics. It will be a better config than a A4 APU based laptop.

I have HP G6 2005ax, having AMD A8-4500.
Now it gives good performance, but it has comparatively less processing power.

Its clocked at 1.4ghz to 2.8ghz (just when needed). It stays constant around 2.0 ghz - 2.3 ghz.

Its definitely not bad, but some applications which need more processing power will take some time.
Booting time is also a lil longer. (Some non-tech savvy people judge processors by booting time.)

So choose according your need.
If you're gonna be using such softwares, prefer ones which have more proccy power around 3ghz. (Dual core ones)

But it also has its plus points.
Its quad core. Open as many tabs in browser, play songs, multitasking never suffers.
You can limit the processors clock to 1.4 to 1.9 ghz. Which can help improving battery life.

So far, i dont regret. In fact, happy with it.

And also, you have got to decide on screen size to let others help.

15.6" laptops weigh around 2.5kg, which is uncomfortable to carry around.

This one is 3K more than budget, but it has 1TB HDD + 6GB RAM. No OS though.

for 720P resolution both will handle HD videos very well but APUs HD 63xx gpu core may a little more powerful in games but then again B960 offers more than double processing power compared to similarly priced apu based laptops and at lower resolution cpus processing power plays a nice role in gaming performance. .. so overall B960 PDC is a nice choice FYI : it's based on Sandy Bridge ;-)
