What will they be using the laptops for?

What size laptop are you looking for? Any preferences as far as weight or battery performance? Also when considering CPU vs. Graphics which you say: CPU is more important, equal in importance, or Graphics is more important?

normal size like 15" weight doesn't matter, and I'd like them to be able to play good games so equal in importance, thanks!

The CPU you picked as an "Ultra Low Voltage". Nothing wrong with it, it just leans more towards power savings than performance. There was a good review of the 14" version here: http://www.anandtech.com/show/2886/2

Also to give you an idea of how the CPU & GPU will work together look at the following article, and the gaming page is linked here, paying attention to the relative performance of the ASUS UL50Vf and understand your results would be a little lower as the results shown are for an OCed SU7300 + 210M:
