Default GTS 250 or Mobile HD 5650?

I know a lot about computers but I know next to nothing about graphics cards. I just follow the reviews.

Now I bought a laptop with an HD 5650 and am wondering is it better or worse than my buddies GTS 250 he has in his desktop? I'm assuming the GTS 250 is better. I failed at finding a site where I could see a comparison.

You should never compare laptop graphics to desktop ones. Only the ones in high end "gaming" laptops are comparable (extremely expensive). The GTS250 is miles ahead of the laptop one.

lol - I was hoping they were a bit closer than miles apart. Alright thanks for your response. :)
