Which Laptop

Hello,

I am looking to buy a laptop that will allow me to play some mmorpgs (champions and old republic) on a casual basis and will act as an entertainment system otherwise. I have found 2 contenders on laptopsdirect and was wondering which of the two would be more capable or if you know of a cheaper still alternative.

Laptop 1:

* Processor - Intel Core 2 Duo T6400 2.13 GHz Dual-Core
* RAM - 3 GB (installed) 4 GB (max) - DDR3 SDRAM
* Hard Drive - 320 GB
* Operating System - Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium
* Screen - 15.6 in TFT active matrix 1366 x 768 24-bit (16.7 million colours)
* Optical Drive - DVD±RW (±R DL) / DVD-RAM
* Graphics - NVIDIA GeForce G105M
* Graphics - NVIDIA GeForce G105M - 512 MB

Laptop 2:

* Processor - AMD Turion X2 mobile processor RM-74 2.2 GHz Dual-Core
* RAM - 4 GB (installed) 8 GB (max) - DDR2 SDRAM
* Hard Drive - 320 GB
* Operating System - Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium
* Screen - 15.6 in TFT active matrix 1366 x 768 24-bit (16.7 million colours)
* Optical Drive - DVD±RW (±R DL) / DVD-RAM
* Graphics - ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570
* Graphics - ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570 - 512 MB


The obvious difference is the choice of AMD or C2D processors and the Graphics cards.

I am trying to keep the cost right down and I understand that this will effect the quality of my gaming experience but I have never had a system that would play much above medium settings so am not deterred by this.

Thanks in advance for you consideration,
