    Well, it may not be so important, but it may be misleading. There's a typo at first paragraph I guess, 530 should be a i3 model number, not an i5.

      It's like saying elephant hunting with a 38 special is bad let's try a 44 magnum.

        When I was talking about Intel vs AMD driver status I was thinking exactly about issues like these: http://www.phoronix.com/forums/showthread.php?t=22265

        So everybody is saying that the driver is no good. On the other hand from other Phoronix articles about i3 integrated gpu I get the impression that all is good and stuff works. Needless to say that I'm totally confused

          Do not blaim them for only implementing the bare office desktop basics!

          As far as ATI's conserned; they are above and beyond my respect ratings. If people want faster graphics from them then get hacking!
          For a whole lot of users that's quite enough. Keep in mind that Intel is one of the dominant players in this area: http://www.dvhardware.net/article35012.html

          Having working drivers available at the release of the hardware is really important.

            I wasn't dissing Intel for it, I was just stating what their IGPs were for and that people shouldn't expect anything else from it
