    My name is Apoorva. I am from India.

    Now I would like to know the basic difference in terms of performance for an onboard graphics card and an external graphics card for a Laptop.

    What could be a major difference?
    Also, for Onboard graphics, it is said on all the branded website that the size of it is upto 384MB shared.

    So, say for instance, if I go for an external graphics card for a new laptop which I am planning to purchase and the size of this external graphic card is 256MB or 128MB and as Onboard graphic card already provides 384 MB shared memory, therefore the question is that how could that external graphics card sizing 256 MB deliver better performance as compared to Onbard graphics which sizes 384 MB shared?

    Also, how are the new laptops launched by HP in India in terms of performance, mobility & stability?
    The Laptop which I am looking for falls under 6700 series and is a business series laptop.

    Waiting eagerly for a reply...
