Why "switchable graphics" is not available for Hi-End gaming laptop? Tags: Laptops Gaming Graphics Last response: May 23, 2010 6:03 AM in Laptops & Notebooks Share lgmcben May 23, 2010 4:38:45 AM After a day of googling, the strongest switchable graphics gaming laptops I found is the ones with Radeon HD 5730. For example, - Lenovo Y560 - MSI GE600 Why can't these arrandale-based switchable graphics laptop use something like HD 5870 or GTX 280m? I assume there's a good reason behind it?
