I am looking to get a new HP laptop with the Core i3. This will be my secondary computer since I have a pretty decent desktop already.
Now, I am wondering if I need to spend extra for the dedicated video card option? I am a college student so I would be using this laptop for CAD, statistics software, and watching videos on the internet.
Once in a while I may watch some DVD's, and maybe also some movie files on the TV through the HDMI connection. Definitely no gaming.
Can I get away with integraded video or will a dedicated video card make a HUGE difference? Thank you.
