    They're good laptops (I use a Dell XPS M1730 myself), so I'm sure you'll be perfectly happy with it

    But the CPU - the only component you've mentioned, is not the most important component for gaming. It's the graphics card. And plenty of RAM can often make a difference too.
    So make sure you get one with (4GB RAM, and) a decent graphics card in it... even if it means opting for a slightly slower CPU (which depends on your budget of course)

    The studios HD3450 is nothing amazing but it will happily run most games at mudium settings
