I have an intel gpu in my current laptop and it has trouble running the most basic 3D graphics. Getting into 3D animation as I am this has become a big problem. I am now in the market for a new laptop. The problem is that whenever I find one that I really like that fits my price range it ends up having intel integrated. Are there any intel graphics chips that are good for gaming and 3D work? Oh and getting an AMD powered laptop is not an option. Thank you very much.
Consider selling your laptop and buying one with at least a 9600M GPU. They're around $700 but for $800, here's one with a 9800Gm GPU:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16834152095R
If you have $1400 for a new laptop then you can aford one with a GTX 260M.
