[all variants] Laptop Hardware for VirtualBox and case recomendations

view full story

http://ubuntuforums.org – I am currently looking for a laptop for my dad. The plan is to install Ubuntu on it. However, he likes to play poker during his travels so Virtualbox will be necessary. I know there is wine, however we have had much better success (flawless operation) with Virtualbox. It will have 4GB of ram. My main concerns are the videocard. I believe that virtualbox does not even use the videocard of the computer, so I don't see any reason to purchase a more expensive and power hungry dedicated videocard over the integrated videocard. This computer will only be used for mozilla (Hardware)
