For small data sets, the Intel graphics should be fine.  If it is 
sluggish, then consider upgrading to a laptop with AMD or NVIDIA 
graphics, and if that is still sluggish, switch to a desktop system.  
For similar price points, a desktop system, with AMD or NVIDIA graphics, 
will out perform a laptop, and you can spend more and get even better 

As for your problem, my guess is that either you don't have a graphics 
driver installed or you have an ancient graphics driver installed.  So 
the first step is to go to your computer's manufacturer's web page and 
update the graphics driver to the latest version.  There might be other 
updates from the manufacturer that would help too (BIOS, other chipset 
drivers).  If it still doesn't work (because manufacturers frequently 
stop updating the graphics driver), you should be able to use Intel's 
latest version from http://downloadcenter.intel.com/.  Intel's version 
will not have any customizations that your computer's manufacturer has 
made, but that is usually an acceptable tradeoff to get working 3D graphics.

And if you are still having problems after updating the graphics driver, 
use Chimera's Help | Report a Bug .. dialog to report the bug and we'll 
dig deeper into the problem.
