Choosing the right computer

Specs: Windows XP
I am looking to get a laptop computer but am
having trouble deciding which one to go for as I
know next to nothing about processors and
what have you.
I have found a few I might be interested in but
would like to know whether they would suit my
purposes. I want something that can be used
for long periods of time and can handle most
games I throw at it without as many lag
issues.

The details of some of the ones I've looked at
thus far are:
1. HP DV61340SA Refurbished Laptop
Intel Core 2 Duo processor T6600
(2.2Ghz, 800Mhz, 2MB Cache)

2, HP DV72230SA Refurbished Laptop
Intel Core 2 Duo processor T6600
(2.2Ghz, 800Mhz, 2MB Cache)
ATI 4530 graphics with 512mb memory

3. ACER ASP7736G Refurbished Laptop
Intel Core 2 Duo processor T6600
(2.2Ghz, 800Mhz, 2MB Cache)
Nvidia G210M 512MB graphics

4. Intel Core 2 Duo processor T6600
(2.2Ghz, 800Mhz, 2MB Cache)
Intel Graphics 4500MHD

5. HP DV7-2050 Refurbished Laptop
AMD Turion Ultra Dual Core processor ZM8
(2.3GHz, 1600MHz, 2 MB Cache)
ATi Radeon HD4530 Graphics Card

These are the main things I want to know the
differences between anyway, I'd like to know
how they compare with each other and how
decent they are stand alone.
Cheers

If you are looking to get a solid gaming laptop, you need to set aside a couple of $1000.00 ... are you looking to spend that much?

Not really, around the £530 mark is about as high as I'm willing to go.

The CPU is important but not as important as the graphics. Not one of the 5 laptops you listed have decent gaming graphics.
