    Honestly, none of them. You ABSOLUTELY need 512MB of video memory, and this is not something you can upgrade later on a laptop.

    Here's what I just bought:


    The only game I've run is WoW, but I'm getting 50-60 fps on mostly max settings.

    The one I would most recommend for you is the Asus:


    It's received outstanding reviews at Cnet and PCWorld as a great, affordable gaming computer. The only reason I decided against it was its bulk when taking it to class. It is heavier than mine, but will outperform mine on games.

    the Dell you list has intel graphics so stay away from intel graphics, i usually don't advocate gaming laptops as you cant upgrade the graphics card to keep up with game revisions but on a desktop you can keep the motherboard and CPU for quite a while and get a much cheaper lap top, but thats just my 2 cents
