    I am learning DX10 and mostly work on a desktop with a good discrete GPU.
    I however am now considering a potentially cheap notebook that allows me to do some DX10 learning and development on the road. Is the 4500MHD (derived from G45?) a decent chipset for DX10?

    I do not care much about performance (though thats always a plus). Instead I am looking for cheap options and also hopefully bugfree and stable drivers. Should I buy the notebook using 4500MHD or should I go for some Nvidia or AMD chipset (8200m/9200m/780g and so on)?

    Intel is notorious for having the exact opposite. The drivers for their integrated graphics are more often than not described as horrendously bad.

    A cheap AMD/Nvidia would do just fine, even if it is integrated.
