Difference between an Intergrated Graphics & an Shared Graphics on a Laptop

  mctrout 15:14 26 Dec 13

I am buying a laptop for my wife, she will not be using any image editing programs just some Office & a few games for our grandchildren. The laptops I see popping up have either integrated Graphics card or Shared Graphics card one had Intel HD Graphics 4000 on it. I have no idea which is the best one, although I know a dedicated graphics would be best, that would set me back a bit few £s more than I can afford. Could someone please give me a bit of advice on getting the a decent but affordable laptop or notebook. Thanks Mac

Different terminology for the same thing. I find this site handy, link, although they call them 'cards' rather than chips. Intel HD Graphics 4000 at the bottom end of 'class 3'.

Intel HD Graphics 4000
