Intel Integrated HD4000 vs Nvidia GeForce GT 525 M (2 GB) - Photoshop

I currently have a i7-2620m, with an GeForce GT525M graphics card. The computer is a little over 2 yrs old and a bit bulky and has almost no battery life.

I've been looking into getting a ultrabook (like the Samsung Ativ9 or Dell XPS13) but I notice those both rock an integrated HD4000 card. Furthermore, the Samsung only has 4gb ram while the dell has 8. My current computer has 8. Both the Samsung and Dell have a third gen i7 (and i5 options) with SSD drives.

I'm not gamer at all, but I am a heavy Photoshop cs6 user for work. Should I scratch the ultrabook idea?

Thanks for your help everyone, I don't really know much when it comes to the graphics card.

Hey HillbillyAsian, thanks for the reply and help! I'm not against a little bulkier, but my current laptop is 1080p so I'd want to stay at that. My current budget is $1400, but I don't know if that's too much or too little. I can wiggle around from there.

To give you an idea, a refurb'd dell from the dell outlet is around $1100. The Samsung is around $1300-$1400.
