The answer to this question really depends on what you intend to use your laptop or computer predominantly for.

  • What Intel HD graphic cards are good for
If you use your computer or laptop mainly for browsing the internet, writing word documents or using programs such a Powerpoint, then yes an Intel HD graphic card will work great.

They run on low heat, so your fan will not be constantly needing to work, which in turn will make your battery last longer if you are on a laptop without mains power supply.

  • What Intel HD graphic cards are not so good for
You may come into some difficulties and issues with the Intel HD graphic card if you use it to play very high-frame rate intensive games. Due to the card working on low heat it will struggle to keep up with the demands of the game; which will make the game stutter or freeze from time to time. This of course can be very annoying and unforgiving if you're playing online.

Therefore the card is certainly not recommended if you are a bit of a game junkie and you require the fastest gaming experience possible.

  • Ask advice at your local computer store
If you wish for more advice, or would like to know all the alternative graphic cards on the market, then why not head down to your local computer store. If you explain to them what you plan to use your computer or laptop for, they will be able to advise you on the best suited card to your needs.
