Hi, I am looking at some notebooks to purchase and I am not sure if I would benefit of discrete graphics card. Could you please help?

I don't play any games. But sometimes do a little bit of video editing with Adobe Premiere. Would it make a big difference with one of the NVIDIA cards?

The rest of the time I do mostly webdesignw tih dreamweaver and photoshop. I do copy some DVDs and watch video streaming over the web. Would a graphic card help with any of these?

With that kind of stuff, I'd just go with integrated graphics, and put my money into more RAM and a faster CPU.

Agree. No dedicated GPU needed.
