Hello, has anyone heard or seen anything on ultrabooks or convertable tablet/laptops that have anything better than integrated graphics? I can't even find talk of anything coming in the future that will have an nVidia card.

It doesn't need to be a great GPU, just something better than Intel HD 4000. I'm basically looking for a great work tablet that can run a few games decently when plugged in.

Thanks

http://www.gigabyte.com/products/produc ... id=4209#kf Comes with a 640M GT. Other wise the Asus Zenbook Prime UX32VD comes with a GT 620. Do not get one with a 610M, it's actually worse than the HD4000

Have a price range in mind? There are a few out there with the GT650M & GT660M but they're fairly pricey.

No real price range, but I would prefer laptop/tablet convertables if they exist yet.

Haswell is your answer. Especially when the S7 get's the chipset refresh this summer.

Yeah, I'll probably hold out for that chip in a convertible. Thanks
