Well, back when it was new it was considered a pretty / very good business laptop.

The NVS 4200M is basically a GT 520m, but the drivers for it are not geared towards gaming. The Intel HD 4000 in the Ivy Bridge generation CPU is considered a little more powerful. That means the Intel HD 4400 / 4600 are also more powerful than the NVS 4200m / GT 520.

Here's a simple rank order from least powerful to most powerful:

Intel HD 3000
nVidia GT 415m
nVidia GT 510m
nVdia NVS 4200m
nVidia GT 610m
nVidia GT 520m
Intel HD 4000
nVidia NVS 5400
Intel HD 4400
nVidia GT 620m
nVidia GT 710m
Intel HD 4600
nVidia GT 540m
nVidia GT 720m
nVidia GT 630m
