hey, i see that you like to play battlefield 2, and i thought i'd warn you that the integrated graphics on an intel machine cannot run it (i looked at the list the other day when installing f.e.a.r.) While they're not bad, it's just not compatable. So, if you want an intel processor, get dedicated graphics of some sort. If you want AMD, get something with at least the geforce go 6150 onboard graphics. It's not so bad on a budget.

Look for reviews on each laptop that you are considering with said chip. Look for video benchmarks and see which wins.

The x1400 is usually more than enough for most gamers.
