Hi all

I am about to buy a Gigabyte Z170-HD3 DDR3 and a Intel Core i3-6100 Processor 3M Cache 3.70 GHz. What do you guys think?

Can 10.11 run with just the integrated video card?

Thank you!

@trs96 Could you please elaborate on this?
The new 15" MBP uses the HD530 graphics in combination with AMD RX460 discrete gfx. So once we get the 10.12.2 public release I'm hoping/expecting the HD530 will cause fewer problems. Apple may not have all the bugs worked out by then but it should be better.
