I don't think Intel HD Graphics would run those stuff at Max Settings lol. I have a Toshiba Laptop with Intel Graphics. It sometimes even lags on Online Flash Games and it lags GTA San Andreas and some WoW gaming even on Lowest Settings. And Yes Intel Graphics would run Photoshop CS5 and some other programs but expect to see some slow performance or disabled Features. Its only good for Those Laptop users who would use them for Work. Even the Lightest Gaming would give you lag. Get Discrete :)


Hell if you have options for Desktop PCs then Get it! :D

unless your absolutly stuck on the portable issue, forget a laptop, they will always be second hand in performance to a desktop.
If you have to have a laptop, get one with either a nVidia or ATI card. Even one of nVidia/ATI's mid-level cards is better than a top of the line Intel video card.

So yeah, fork over for a desktop, unless you HAVE to be portable, then get a laptop with a dedicated graphics card.

i absolutely agree with you guys on the desktop issue... i am currently building a desktop my self...

also i never play flash games on my laptop or in general... they just seem pointless and stupid to me... the only thing i use a browser for is for this forum my server forum facebook and yahoo...

idk bout you but i am very secure and careful with any think that i click on... and i think since my computer isnt clogged with garbage thats y it is running my games fine...

BTW, I started this thread and thought I should input my final thought - I decided to get an HP laptop with the ATI HD 5650 graphics (love it). Play Assassins Creed on good settings, supports Photoshop's GPU acceleration and in general is a really good graphics card for a laptop.

My Specs:
i5 Processor
4 GB ram
ATI HD 5650

Hi guys,
I am planning to buy a Dell Inspiron Laptop, but I am on a tight budget. I can either have a Pentium Dual Core + Radeon Mobility Dedicated Graphics card or a Core-i3 with Integrated Intel HD Graphics card. Which do you think is the better option?

What do you plan on using the laptop for. I'm not very familiar with processors but I know dual core and i3 is similar but I believe i3 would be a bit faster. So if you're going to use your laptop for general stuff like word, browsing etc, I would go for the i3. If you want to game at all, for the Pentium Dual Core + Radeon Mobility laptop.

yes the 5650 is an excellent card. good choice. that card is actually capable of running many games well.

I suggest you get the core-i3 one. Pentium dual core is pretty slow, and I don't think the dedicated card is going to make up for that.

If possible, I suggest you try to get a laptop that is on the latest second generation core-i3 (look for i3-2310M) processor with the intel HD 3000 graphics. The intel HD 3000 is actually very good for an integrated solution.

You have a GeForce GTS 350M. That kinda sucks that you don't know what's inside your own pc.

I have Radeon HD 3200 that came with my PC, I want to upgrade it, but it is ok, it runs games, handles Aero fine... If your on a resticted budget you may want to look in to it.

Yes, Intel is still garbage when it comes to gaming. Avoid it if you can. If you must go integrated, look for an ATi HD 3200/4200, or an Nvidia 9400M or 340M (I believe).


Yea but I'm not gaming, so would it be ok for very very light gaming once in a while (and games that do not require high specs) and multimedia purposes.

My friend has a fairly new laptop, it has intel HD integrated graphics.

Just for kicks my friend installed steam and TF2, it chugged along at 4fps at the bare minimum settings. In windowed mode even, at the smallest resolution possible. His IGP also stutters on some flash games, like Bloons TD 4. Look into a discrete graphics option if you even think of a game running on it, preferrable on with nVidia's Optimus so you can have battery life of more than 3 hours.

no its not true i am able to play 11gb cod modern warfare 2 at my intel hd graphic.it can also run nfs mw,cs source,tf2

no its, true. i have a brand new vaio laptop, i3 processor, and intels new hd videocard and i can play modern warfare 2. tf2 on maximum graphic specs fine. the new intel hd is ok, still shittier than any 40-50 dollar graphics card but certainly a big step up from what it used to be. if you consider yourself a gamer id look elsewhere. but i can run these games at a pretty nice framerate, pretty well.
