Mobile Intel HD graphics card OR nVidia 525M

Deciding between Toshiba Portege R835-P56X and Toshiba M645-S4118X.

Usage as travel computer, light useage of Photoshop, cataloguing s/w - NO GAMES!

I know nVdia is better. But will the Portege graphics be adequate?

  1. An objective approach to your needs demands removing the 525M out of the equation.

    However, adding nVidia graphics acceleration will produce a more rounded-out purchase and who knows? Windows 8 may introduce a 3D interface for the OS.

    Judging from your needs, Integrated GPU will suffice.

    Thank you so much for a quick response! I bought a high-end nVdia card for my desktop which gets heavy Photoshop usage with lots of plug ins. But I do little processing while traveling. Mostly just look at photos, check email, etc.

    What about running a simple slide show? Is the Mobile Intel HM65 still adequate?
