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:

If you have $1400 for a new laptop then you can aford one with a GTX 260M.

why is ATI not an option? Do you hate them that much? You can get a ATI or Nvidia integrated graphics card on a new laptop which is much better than anything Intel has right now.

I have connections at Intel, that's why I don't want to get an AMD powered laptop. If there are Intel powered laptops with ATI graphics I would love that, I've got ATI in my desktop now.

Are Intel Integrated Graphics Chips Good For Anything? NOPE!
If the intel chipset cost you a lot less go for it. Dont expect to game or run 1080p properly though.

Intel Graphics are good for getting around Windows and playing non HD video.

Maybe some games from 2003.

Actually the latest X4000HD Intel integrated graphics can play high def. But not much more. Although they are officially direct x 10 compatible, when tested with modenish games such as Crysis it had to be played at mostly lowest settings and white dots appeared on the screen.

So if possible get a laptop with an old generation ATI or Nvidea card rather than intel. Unfortunately Im stuck with mine as its a work laptop. What a waste: Fast dual core processor, 4GB of ram and shitty Intel graphics. The only plus side is was that is was free!
