I know everyone on here tends to favor dGPU. The obvious benefit is better graphics capability. But if you don't do anything that NEEDS dedicated graphics, then IMO iGPU is better for these reasons: 1. Better Battery Life 2. Cooler Temperatures for Computer 3. No Chance of dGPU Card Failing Then Spending Hundreds to Fix So IMO the dGPU if anything is more of a burden than a perk unless you REALLY need it and use it ALL the time.
