My System Specs

Question 9400GT vs. Intel HD Graphics 3000

Hi!
After searching on different forums I came across this site so I decided to post.

I am thinking of Switching from a desktop to a laptop.

My current system specs are:

Intel Core 2 Duo E7400 2.8Ghz
2GB DDR2 RAM
ASUS P5KPL-VM Board
nvidia 9400GT 512MB
Windows 7 Ultimate x64
320GB SATA

The Laptop I am thinking of getting is the Dell 15R with following specs:

Core i3 2nd Generation 2.2Ghz
4GB DDR3 RAM
Intel HD Graphics 3000 with 1.6GB dynamic video memory shared with system memory
500GB SATA
Windows 7 Ultimate x64

Now I am really concerned about the graphics. Is the Integrated Intel HD Graphics 3000 adapter better then the 9400GT or not?

I don't play games but I watch 720p or 1080p movies. I have a Samsung S23A300B 23" 1080p monitor which I will be using. 9400GT is working perfectly with the monitor and there is no lag while playing movies so will Intel HD Graphics 3000 be better then my current graphics or will they be poor then my current graphics.

Please respond because I am going to purchase the system soon. I am already going out of my budget to get the laptop so I cannot upgrade to one with graphic card.
