    Hello,
    I am upgrading from the Toshiba L500D with its AMD graphics and AMD processor. Its around 2008. I have an old HP pent4 2.53 processor and a new old stock HDD which I use for just ripping vinyl nowadays to the computer to stream on the Toshiba. I also own a Compaq Presario R3000 with Pent4 3.2hz processor.

    I am looking at a HP Probook 6570b that is not far from me. The review below says its processor and graphics are upgradeable? The graphics 7570 is not switchable whatever that means? and only marginally better than the intel graphics 4000. If I were to get 16gb of ram, does that mean only 1gb of dedicated ram from graphics card would be for graphics? The Intel grpahics uses system ram

    review below
    thanks
    Sam

    As the graphics are not switchable, no RAM will go to the Intel graphics as it isn't enabled. Also, I would generally not worry about how much RAM uses if you have 4GB of RAM or more.

    Because the graphics are not switchable, battery power consumption is generally higher and as seen in the battery runtimes it will run for only about 2.5 hours doing simple tasks such as web browsing.
