Graphics-intensive operating systems and applications rely heavily on the GPU to run at their best and thus let you perform at your best too. Unfortunately, integrated graphics (combo CPU/GPU chip) and just adequate GPUs are permanently installed (translation: can’t be upgraded) in notebook, small form factor, and all-in-one design computers.
