It only says Intel® HD Graphics. Though I believe it should have HD 2000 or HD 3000 since it is mostly identical to i3-2350M.

It is just HD graphics

It is not HD 2000, 2500, 3000, or 4000
It is most similiar to HD 2000 however.
The performance varies depending on the CPU speed apparently.
The take home message is... it is the most basic Intel HD graphics. You can web-browse and watch videos with it. But, it can't play Crysis... or most games as a matter of fact.
It also does not have Intel Quick Sync for encoding/decoding HD videos.

This is a Sandy Bridge processor. HD 4000 & HD 2500 are only available for Ivy Bridge processors.
It can't be HD 2500 since that newer than HD 3000 on the i3 I also posted.

I was just throwing in a placeholder at first while I investigated. It is good to know this stuff. It seems like the graphics portion of that chip really stink. The benchmarks of the CPU portion seem great though.

Thanks again. I was looking for a notebook and came to check the specs. A pricelist on one of the computer shops here is misinforming buyers (I think unintentionally) because they specifically listed HD3000 for their laptops.

I reported this to them. Hopefully, they would remove it.

Thanks again for your help.
