Your hw falls into this line in http://intellinuxgraphics.org/documentation.html:
HD Intel(r) HD Graphics (used in Intel(r) 2010 Core(tm) i7/i5/i3 processor family)
The CPU codename is Arrandale.
QM57/QS57 is the PCH (chipset) name.
I guess "Discrete" mentioned in Dell offer means the notebook also includes (or supports) discrete gfx card (non-Intel).
