I believe I have read somewhere in this forum that GE will not work on "any" laptop and also that it "might work" on a laptop, depending on the graphics card.... I know it will not run on my current laptop using the onboard Intel 4000 HD graphics card, but does anyone know if it works on a laptop using a GE FORCE 950m ?

it is very likely to work on a laptop with a dedicated graphics card.
The GeForce 950m is such a card.

Please note: some laptops have two graphics cards.
In that case you would have to make sure that the laptop uses the dedicated gpu when opening the GE.
But that's no problem ;)

how do I know if giants editor is opening with my dedicated graphics card and not the integrated card?

you can force that in the driver settings (nvidia tool).
Sorry, I can't give you a step by step how to becaus ei have no laptop ;)
But I'm pretty sure that it i srather simple, except that you have to find that setting ... maybe you can try to ask g^^gle ;)

But to answer your question :)
Just have alook at the log.txt of the editor, it lists the rendering system too.
The log is also shown in the "console"/scripting window, so you don't need to search the log.txt on your hard drive.
