The laptop has:
-i5 4200u @ 1.6GHz turbo up to 2.6GHz
-4gb Ram
-Nvidia GT 740m 1gb graphics

Will the processor bottleneck the graphics card, bearing it mind that it will use turbo boost to increase frequency when playing games?
Will the processor make general use (i.e. watching videos, browsing) any slower compared to a i5 4200m?

I already have a good gaming desktop, this laptop is for school where I spend most of my time (8am to 6:30pm) mon-sat.
Since it is a secondary computer i does not need to be super-powerful, just powerful enough to let me play a good amount of games, even if the graphics are bad.
