Is anyone running a new laptop with an integrated graphics card?  How does Revit work with this setup.  I would get a new laptop under $1000 w/ Intel core Duo 2.0, 4gd ram, 320 g HD, and unfortuantely most of the new laptops come with these integrated graphics cards.  Your thoughts? Thanks

For Laptops, you know that an integral Vcard shares mem with the processor. If you have 4Gigs of RAM and your v-card is tagged at 512MB, it takes a quarter of your RAM. Most standard Laptop comes that way, that's why you only need a laptop if you travel a lot with your Revit Stuff. Also consider if you are doing lots and lots of rendering, laptops are not meant to run overnight regularly.

Thanks Manhs for the response.  Yeah, I read that the integrated cards are built into the motherboards and share from your pool of memory, but I heard that this slows things down a bit, so I was just wondering if anyone had any experience with this with regards to Revit.  Some of these built in cards can alot as much as a gig of ram from your main memory.  Is this good enough to handle revit?

I've been using Revit on a 2007 Toshiba Satellite (one of the first models to come with Vista, off the shelf from Best Buy.)  It has integrated graphics with a stated maximum of 224 MB usage.  The entire machine has 2GB of RAM.  This generally slows down things like rendering and shadows, but actually running the program doesn't seem to be a problem.  I just downloaded 2010, it's a little slower but still usable.  Frankly I often run out of processor power before memory (Intel Core 2 T5500 @ 1.66Ghz)
