I too use the onboard intel graphics (HD3000 in my case). The
performance may be 3 years or so behind nvidia, but it is good enough,
even for most not too recent games. There is no need to mess around
with proprietary drivers and stuff like that, it pretty much just works.

However, there seem to be some bugs around, for example this one hits
me (and many other people, have a look at the long list of duplicates)
from time to time, is quite long standing and as of yet unresolved:

The intel graphics world isn't perfect either.
