    And doesn't it "borrow" from the system RAM, or am I terribly confused?

    (Awesome avatar, by the way.)

    Correct, the Intell GPU uses the system RAM as its VRAM.

    (Why thank you.)

    I believe it also has 128MB of onboard eDRAM too.

    Iris has 128MB of dedicated super fast RAM, and it can borrow up to 1GB of memory in the system RAM
