Seeing how it seems as if the nvidia 650m seems to be just sufficient for powering the 2880x1800 retina display (pardon me if i am wrong), would the intel hd graphics ever be utilised or will it just grow mouldy in a little corner? :D

i only use the nvidia GPU when i want to game. it never gets turned on for anything else.

Less heat and more battery with the iGPU

seems like the intel hd 4000 isn't powerful enough to support scrolling without lag after scaling! would that mean the hd 4000 graphics card is almost useless? :(
