    just got my new laptop as a trade in for my pc :( and just wanted to see what kind of games if any would run on the Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 128MB shared video memory.

    the whole spec is:

    Intel Centrino Pentium M 1.73Ghz 533Mhz FSB W/ 2MB L2 Cache
    1GB DDR2 (dual channel support)
    Intel Graphics Media Accelerator W/ 128MB Shard Video Memory

    EDIT: i just found out that Pentium M cpus are used by dell in their XPS gaming laptops.. so maybe that should be ok?

    Just done a google search and this gets 997 points in 3dmark03 so I would say you wouldn't be able to play any new games on it.
