Will buying a $100 upgrade (added 512mb ATI Radeon HD 5450) to my prospective laptop be worth it if I don't play any games or do 3D rendering? I need to be able to use Photoshop and have good performance, and I don't know if it's worth it custom ordering from HP just for the extra graphics card, or buying it straight from the store with the Intel HD only. Any advice would be helpful! It's a time sink navigating through lists and lists of benchmarks, barely even knowing how to translate the numbers into practical differences and benefits. Thanks for your time!
The prospective laptop has:
i5 430m processor
500GB hard drive
I'm gonna be using Photoshop, Illustrator, etc. and watching DVDs
