You may also encounter problems with "switchable graphics" laptops, particularly those with AMD GPUs, where driver support is quite poor.

 

I have to oppose to this, I've got a laptop with Mobility Radeon HD 5470 and driver fully supports OpenGL 4.2 and some further extensions. Of course the performance of F.e. tessellation is imcomparable to F.e. Radeon 6870 that I've got in desktop, but...

 

Even further, the Linux drivers (as I'm mainly Linux user, but run both major OS on my computers) supports same version of OpenGL and same extensions.

 

EDIT: Although I can't state about older AMD gpus...
