Is Getting a Laptop with an Integrated Graphics Chip a Good Idea?

People are often wary of computers with integrated chips, and they shouldn't be. They have evolved so much over the last few years and there are very few things that a computer with a dedicated graphics card can do that one with an integrated chip can't. There are some cases, however, where you will need an uber-powerful dedicated GPU, but these are very rare. Let's take a look at whether getting a laptop with an integrated chip is a good idea for you.

What Do You Want to Do with Your Laptop?
The first and most important thing is knowing what you want to do with the laptop. If you want to watch YouTube and check your emails, then pretty much any kind of laptop will do. If you want to do things that are more elaborate like graphic design, on the other hand, then there are chips out there that will work for you, but you have to be selective. Also, know that there are cards that can handle AAA games too, but you will again have to be very careful.

Can Gamers be Satisfied with an Integrated Chip?
Yes, they can. It all depends on the type of games you like playing and how much performance you need. If you like playing MOBAs, for instance, then you should be able to get by with a high-quality integrated chip since these games tend to be very light. You can also play plenty of first-person shooters on lower to mid settings on the most recent integrated chips.

If you’re looking for integrated chips that can handle heavier tasks and the majority of games, you should learn about Intel’s new line of integrated graphic chips at

Who Shouldn’t Get a Laptop with an Integrated Graphic Chip?
There is only a small group of people who can't work on a computer with an integrated chip. We're talking about high-level professionals like architects and engineers who need to run complex CAD imaging tools. People who do 4K editing may also need something with a dedicated card, but there are modern chips that can handle these types of applications too. You just have to know where to look.

Integrated Graphic Chips are a Great Deal for the Money
At the end of the day, you will have a hard time beating the level of performance you will get on a laptop with an integrated graphics chip for the price. A dedicated graphics card counts for so much of the total cost of a laptop, and the main benefit of getting an integrated graphics chip is the lower cost. So, if you want to do some gaming, for instance, and you’re on a tight budget, it would be wise to look at what’s going on in the integrated GPU section.

This is all you need to know if you wanted to buy a laptop with an integrated chip but weren’t sure yet. Take the time to look at different chips out there and learn as much as you can about them instead of dismissing them right away.
