I'm trying to decide between some different laptops and I'm hitting a wall regarding video cards. It all comes down to whether I should buy a laptop with a low grade Nvidia (610M) or the integrated Intel HD 4000.
I'm looking at Asus laptops, used mostly for surfing and streaming, light gaming (TF2 and Minecraft), and lots of audio editing and recording. Core i5 with 6+GB RAM.
Is there a significant performance upgrade from the Nvidia (dedicated) and the Intel HD 400 (integrated)?
Because there's a huge price difference.
The HD 4000 graphics are rather comparable to the 610M (that says how dated the 610M is/how far along Intel graphics have come). You could play said games with the Intel HD graphics, but as Asus_USA mentioned, you will get a better gaming experience out of a better GPU - even it's only a GT 635M.
