Well, I do want to use it for games, but only infrequently.
A bigger question is "what kind of games?"
A laptop with Intel graphics might work fine for most casual games, though likely not all.
Laptops with Intel graphics will play "Bejeweled" and "Solitaire" just fine.
But if you're going to want to play games like "Sherlock Holmes: Crimes and Punishments" or the "Grim Fandango Remastered," you're going to need a real video card.
Also I do NOT recommend getting a laptop with "Optimus graphics" because it frequently misdetects the needs of adventure games and shifts into low power mode.
