Don't all laptops have intergrated cards?. Oh and dude you can't run that smoothly on high. probably 30fps on minimum.

What you're looking for is a video card that does not have "shared memory". Shared graphics memory means that the graphics chip uses the system RAM instead of having its own (faster) memory module.

If you look up a video card on this site, you can see whether it uses shared memory or not.

Buy the Z585 that you posted. A6 should be able to run LOL in high setting in 50 - 70 FPS (I do consider it smooth personally). Intel is only an option when you have more cash. >__>

With A8 APU, I think this one is better. It will run LOL better than A6 APU and should be able run LOL in high setting over 60 FPS easily and sustain it in major of the time. As a sale item, it is cheaper as well ($399).

This is the gaming graphic of an A8 4500M APU.

Based on my personally experience, here are some other concerns...
Samsung usually has a fancier outlook than Lenovo... (If you care about the look...)
Lenovo has better customer service than Samsung... (unlikely you will call them...)
Lenovo is abit more durable than Samsung... (If you are planning to use it for 5+ years...)

4Degreez, so you suggest that I purchase that Samsung you linked for me? Instead of the Z585? Can you please list in what ways and aspects the Samsung laptop is better than the Z585. A lot of thanks for helping me and stuff bro also I found another laptop that I have a lot of interest in as well but it is a lot more money. Check it out: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834310625
All I'm looking for is a laptop that can run games like LoL, Skyrim, Diablo, StarCraft 2 etc. modern games like those

Ops I misunderstood your question at first =_=. Their only difference is their APU and brands. A8 is a better APU. That is its CPU and GPU (Graphic Card) are better.

APU = CPU + GPU (it is a concept brought by AMD =_=)
A8 is a better model than A6

Okay this stuff is hard for me. What is A8 APU? What does it do for the laptop and how does it effect my gaming experiences?

Okay all I want to know now is can this laptop (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16834131444) run Diablo, SC2, LoL, Skyrim, etc. The modern games.

I believe it won't have any problem running Diablo, SC2 and LoL

This is how it will run in Skyrim. It lags abit, but it is acceptable consider he is running high setting.

The concept of APU is that most lower end PCs can't really handle the graphic of later games without an independence graphic card, and AMD came out an idea to combine GPU (graphic card) and CPU together targeting the lower end consumers. A6 and A8 are both APU, and in the same family indeed (pretty much the same difference between i5 and i7 =_= in away). A8 is a better model than A6. the GPU of A6 4400m is 7520g and the GPU of A8 4500m is 7640g. While A6 has only 2 cores, and A8 has 4 cores.

Ahh man I'm so scared to make a purchase. Everyone has been telling me integrated graphics is not the way to go and that dedicated graphics cards are much much better and worth the money.

So everything about the A8 is better than the A6
