Thanks for the recommendation. That looks good. Let me ask you this though:

I've been looking at getting a Dell 15R because I read their i3 with ATI 550v dynamically switches between integrated and dedicated graphics, giving great battery life. Is this something all i3 laptops with dedicated cards do?

Not all of them do, but both ATI and NVidia have similar features. Switchable Graphics (ATI) or Optimus (NVidia).
