Default ATI 5470m vs Intel HD graphics


I'm wondering if there's a significant difference between Intel HD graphics and the ATI Mobility Radeon 5470 when talking about multimedia capabilities. I'm buying my sister a 16" laptop (more precisely, an Asus K52), she doesn't play games, but she will use the HDMI output to connect to her HDTV. That said, the laptop doesn't come with a blu-ray reader so she won't stream real-time HD video on her TV.

So my question is, knowing that she's going to use it mostly for office/web/multimedia (playing movies over HDMI), is it worth to go with the 5470-equipped model or will it make no difference ?
