Do dedicated laptop graphics cards generally run hotter than
integrated ones? I'm looking for a laptop to use for long hours, every
day, in place of my desktop, so I don't want something that will start
warping or going brittle due to excessive heat build-up. The machines
I am contemplate have dual core T550 CPUs, however one has a nVidia
Geforce 8400 GPU and the other has the Intel UMA GM965 gpu,
Will the second machine run cooler than the first, (and draw less
current) owing to the integrated GPU? They are both the same brand
(Advent) and approximately the same (2007/8) year of manufacture.

I use mine as my main computer and I've not had any problems with it.
Unless you're doing 3D gaming, the Geforce will run as cool as the
