Could be your Java version. do you have 64 bit java? with 32 you'll crash all the time and it will lag horribly if you ARE using 32 bit java. try reinstalling with 64 bit java. or you arent dedicating enough memory to java.

You could try installing Linux. I have never seen Linux run Minecraft poorly.
It's your video card, Intel HD is awful, either change the video card, or your fwocked
I think it is just minecraft, I just bought a new alienware pc 6gb ram Gtx460M graphics care and it still does not run well....But on the other hand I have a desktop that will run this game just fine.
Funny, cuz minecraft is a cpu heavy game not graphics, try messing with the video settings or upgrading java.
