Graphics
UMA – integrated
Below review is about UMA - integarated Graphics card from PCWORLD

UMA chip sets are typically put into systems that come with an integrated graphics chip and no dedicated video memory. Instead they borrow some memory from your system RAM. This is common on some of today's less-expensive systems; the integrated graphics chip and UMA chip set reduce the system's overall cost.

So while the Aptiva has 64MB of RAM, 8MB of that are dedicated for video and you won't be able to use them. If you want more system RAM, you'll need to add it.

As important as losing the 8MB of system RAM: Video performance is marginal on UMA systems because the graphics controller and system processor have to contend with each other for system-memory bandwidth. So if you like to play PC games or plan to use your system for graphics-intensive applications such as video editing, don't try to save a few bucks by buying one of these systems.

If you want to find out if a system you're buying has an integrated graphics board or a UMA design, check the products specs--and call the vendor. IBM (and most other companies that use UMA chip sets) indicates in its product specifications if a system uses integrated graphics. The keyword to look for is integrated. If you see that, call the vendor to find out if the integrated graphics chip has dedicated video memory or if it borrows from system RAM.
