More about does laptop dual graphics
  1. No, it has a cpu with an integrated graphics chip
  2. NoYes, while this model supports AMD's VISION Technology, there is only the video device provided by the APU on this system (corrected from earlier posting). See the link on the product page:

    There is actually an APU and a dedicated GPU on this system. Nope, I was wrong. There is only the APU provided HD7640G in this system.
  4. didn't say anything about a dedicated GPU, just the Radeon HD 7640G, integrated A8-4500M with shared graphic memory.

    Agreed. While the system supports AMD's Vision Technology, there is only a single video device on this system. The one provided by the APU is the integrated HD7640G. I stand corrected.

    I think the confusion comes because you CAN have the integrated 7640G + dedicated GPU (like 7660M) and THAT setup, if you have it, gives you dual graphics... but those laptops tend to cost a few dollars more.
