Question

New laptop specs

I intend to buy a new laptop - primary use is MS Office, watching movies / live webstreams and browsing. However, I do use it for video editing occasionally using a software called "Pinnacle Studio MovieBox". This software has a reqmnt for "direct x 9 or 10 compatible graphics card with 128 MB"

Currently I have HP G42-478TX, which works great.

As I look to buy a new laptop, if I go for an i3/i5 intel core processor (windows 8/10) laptop with Integrated graphics card (NO dedicated graphics card), will it be sufficient to run the above software? Or will I need a dedicated NVIDIA type graphics card ?

Thanks
