Hi hspradee1, here are your options:

Regarding the GT630, we are unable to provide technical support when customers use PCs that do not meet the minimum system requirements. In your case, a laptop PC with a GT630 graphics card falls under that category. If you continue to use this laptop PC, you will encounter artifacts, unexplained behaviour and issues you might think are software errors (that are in fact caused by the graphics card). For that reason, we would advise you against using this laptop PC.

However, you can purchase a new laptop PC that meets or exceeds the minium system requirements.
All you need to do is to buy a laptop PC with one of the graphics cards that Peter already listed:

You need to look at a laptop (or desktop) with Passmarks of 2000 or above. For laptops those are ones with GTX 775M or above (GTX 780M, 870M, 880M, 970M, 980M, or equivalent ATI/AMD Radeon cards).
The best laptop graphics card that would allow you to work on moderately to very complex projects is currently a laptop PC with the Nvidia 980M. This graphics card gets 6,594 PassMark points which is awesome for a laptop PC. If such a PC isn't available to you, you will have to settle for one of the less powerful graphics cards on Peter's list.

Alternatively, you can buy a desktop PC. If you buy a desktop PC with an Nvidia GTX 980 (the much faster desktop version of the mobile Nvidia 980M) this card gets 9,709 PassMark points which would allow you to work on very complex projects, i.e. projects with lots of models and movie effects. If you pick a slower card with fewer PassMark points, you will still be able to render videos etc but don't expect to be able to add quite so many models and movie effects to your projects.

Does this answer your question?

I wouldn't get the Lenova. The graphics card is under powered.  You need a gaming laptop with at least the gtx970m.  I use a desktop and laptop for lumion.  My laptop is a Dell alienware 15.  It has a gtx970m and works great for all my projects.  MSI and Asus also make comparable gaming laptops in the same price range ($1200-1500).
