Re: Decent Laptop for Engineering Student

I don't have anything but the integrated graphics in the i5 for my T420, and it works just fine for the little bit of gaming I've done (i.e. Portal) and for MATLAB and Inventor, though I haven't had anything really complicated besides 2D graphing and some small assemblies.
