The kind of gaming I do isn't too super-intense (Sauerbraten, FTL, Trine
2 etc) .
And a quick test of Sauer with the settings matching my desktop and
running on a new X instance is giving about 110fps. Not the best, but
not the worst either.

That is why I am slightly annoyed now. Based on the advert (which listed
NVS 5400M and HD 4000) that's what I thought I was buying.
It's not that I've been ripped off, I just didn't quite get the bargain
I was expecting.
Was quite looking forward to arguing with Bumblebee. :)

And what's about the only thing that can't be replaced/upgraded? GPU!

Time to try other games/videos.
