My son needs a laptop, primarly for school work and a little gaming (no doubt). Narrowed down to two computers - real difference is 6 GB vs 8 GB .... Which is better. Also, how important is Video memory and a Graphics chip?

More about : versus 8gb

I highly doubt he will need more than 6 for a laptop unless he is going to be doing heavy video editing.

a dedicated GPU is always going to be better for gaming, but it is not necessary since the onboard GPU on the second generation iSeries chips are more than enough to handle most light gaming.
