I am almost 90% interesed to buy a new Lenovo ideapad S210 20256, that comes with an Intel Celeron 1037U 1,8GHz, 2GB of RAM, 500GB HDD, 11inch screen. Mfg Date: 2014/03/24.
I found an online manual (PDF), and based on that I assume I can upgrade the RAM to 8GB at MAX.
Now my actual main concern is the GPU. I heard that the laptop comes with an Intel HD Graphics but found here at notebookcheck.net that the intel HD Graphics 2500 is also called Intel HD Graphics. Now I am a bit confused.
At the Intel website it is said to be the Intel® HD Graphics.
So I would like if someone can confirm to me what is the GPU used?
I appreciate any help.

The Intel HD Graphics is built in to the processor, so depending on the processor, it could be called Intel HD Graphics, or Intel HD Graphics 4000 grapdepending on which CPU your system comes with. The Lower grade Celeron CPU having a lower grade Intel HD Graphics card and the I3 a bit better Intel HD Graphics 4000 as shown in the spec sheets.
The Celeron equipped S210 with the Intel HD Graphics will perform a bit slower than the Core i3 equipped S210 model with the Intel HD Graphics 4000, but both should work well for casual computing and Internet browsing. Neither 2-core CPUs or graphics card is great for power hungry video games, so if you are a gamer I would look for a different system altogether with a quad core CPU etc.
