    Core2Duo is the prefferable choice, but the ATI graphics of the Athlon notebook are superiour to the Intel graphics of the latter. When playing games the Intel graphics aren't a very good choice.

    I'd say, try to find a Core2Duo Intel notebook, with an ATI or Nvidia graphics card.

    The Acer 5739 look promising...

    Thank you for the fast reply..
    But I heard some C2D can't use virtualization for XP Mode!

    Depents if intel supported it or not. My laptop does not support virtualization and and my pc does support it.
