    Intel integrated graphics uses ram for video ram, and that 32 mb is just minimum reserved ram for video or something like that, most important thing is that ram allocation for video ram is fully automated, it will use as much as it needs.

    Well, no, not to mention, that 2 gb is your ram, not video ram, so if you could allocate all your ram for video, then you wouldnt be able to turn on your pc, cause you wouldnt have any ram. Plus it wouldnt make any difference, cause loading into ram or video ram - its the same ram, if you wanna speed things up a little bit, then buy more and faster ram.

    This is one of the main problems when potential buyers go looking for laptops for gaming or video editing. You can't buy an entry level or mid level laptop and expect it to perform like a desktop that has a decent GPU installed. When you start looking at the comparable specs of high end and gaming laptops you'll see a big price jump from the $300 - $500 to $1500 - $2000 range. You pay for what get.

    I have a Samsung RV511, paid $500, and it does exactly what I need it for and it's going to be 2 years old. Same Intel HD 4000 onboard GPU but I don't do any gaming with it or major video editing but do make the occasional movie with it.

    Yep what the bassfisher6522 said is basically true. I have learned not unless you are willing to spend over $1000 for a laptop it is going to be very hard to find one that is good enough for gaming. find that unless you have reason to need a laptop desktop is the way to go. Anyhow most integrated graphics are not the greatest for any kind of high end gaming. my Intel HD 4600 just makes it by allowing me to play Diablo 3 StarCraft 2 and The Sims 4.
