It is classified as a separate card though; even a basic Intel HD card will run applications better than a system with none but that's obvious
I wouldnt call Intels internal video card a "dedicated graphics card". The processor will just end up doing most of the work. This laptop should sell for £500 to be a decent price to get.
its good spec for a general purpose laptop but I would expect to see a 1050 graphics card at close to this price. I'd pay £499 for this at this price i'd carry on looking If you cant wait its a good price.
This should be fine for most of your needs then and a great price :)
I want it more for video & music work.
