Right off the assembly line
I intend to use a laptop for browsing, playing videos and gaming. Although I'm not a profound gamer, I expect to play the latest games in decent resolution and graphics quality at the least. My budget is about 30k. Flipkart.com offers the Samsung RV NP-RV518-S01IN laptop for a little over 30k. It comes with NVIDIA GeForce GT520 graphic processor.
So, what advantage (or disadvantage) does a laptop have in gaming with a GT520 with 1 GB of dedicated memory, on a laptop with Intel HD 3000 with no dedicated VRAM at all?
The one with the GT520 is about Rs.3,000 more than the one with just the HD 3000. What makes the GT520 so expensive, then? Thanks in advance. :)

Hey everybody, I want to buy a new laptop, preferably within rs.40000. My dad will be paying, and he doesn't trust ASUS and LG, so could someone help me out by suggesting some models from HP/DELL/Acer/Lenovo/Toshiba/Sony/Samsung? I realise HP and Dell are probably a bit overpriced, but still, any suggestions will be helpful. :smile:

There's not much diff b/w GT520 and HD3000. Of course the former performs about 10% better, but not worthy keeping in mind the extra 3k spent, and lesser battery life.
