discrete graphics on a laptop will greatly extend the effective life of your laptop... It makes a huge difference! The offload of graphics from the cpu on a mobile processor is far more noticable than a desktop. It should have 512mb or 1gb. And intergrated means its "onboard" and Discrete means it is a dedicated "video card" although they are both physically on the motherboard intergrated is on the south bridge chip and discrete is its own chip.
For just watching video and websites you can use any laptop... Laptop with a discrete card is very expensive.
if im understanding you right, any gpu, integrated or dedicated, will do.
Thanks everyone; you have answered my question. "Any laptop" these days seems to have at least 1 GB of ram, so that will apparently do. Thanks again.
1GB is low for today standard, add another 1GB, make sure you have 2GB RAM minimum...
Addict: The website of the manufacturer of my old machine says that it will hold a maximum of 2GB ram, so I will upgrade to that amount. Thank you for the help.
