Ok, so... I know full well that integrated graphics don't work as well
as discrete graphics. However, people keep telling me that I won't be
able to play games (and run my Chemistry software, but since you lot
are probably more familiar with the reqs for online gaming, let's go
with that) with integrated graphics.
Now, does that mean that the games literally WILL NOT OPEN AND RUN, or
are they just saying that it won't work well enough for me to enjoy
playing (which makes more sense to me)? Will the computer refuse to even run the games? See, that
doesn't make sense to me, but people keep saying that I won't be able
to do stuff.
Can someone explain that? Yeah, I know it's stupid. =)
Also, once all the drivers are released, how much better do you
anticipate x3000 being? I'm looking to buy a new laptop when Santa Rosa
comes out, and I'd like to get an ultraportable. Those don't usually
come with discrete graphics, so I'd like to know how well I can expect
x3000 to perform. If it's not going to be at least acceptable, then
I'll need to look for a discrete option. I have a desktop with a 512 MB graphics card for doing most of my work/gaming, but when I'm on the road I want something that will at least function enough to allow me to work.
