I would go for AMD with a built-in decent graphics processor from ATI or Nvidia. We've tested a lot of notebooks with processors from both companies. Best performance for dollar is with AMD.

If youer going to play games on your laptop, I think you will prefer its native resolution, not 800x600, no?

EDIT: And, if your preoccupation is your battery life, choose the Pentium M (NOT A CELERON), for speed I guess a Turion, but Im not sure, don't know about them.

Turion MT class uses 25 watts.
Turion ML class uses 35 Watts.

For gaming I would consider that the Turion is s direct descendant of the Athlon XP which argualbly is superior to any of Intel's chips for gaming, and that the Pentium M is a modified Pentium 3.
The Pentium M represents a radical departure for Intel, as it is not a low-power version of the desktop-oriented Pentium 4, but instead a heavily modified version of the Pentium III Tualatin design (itself based on the Pentium Pro core design).

I can build you a respectable gaming rig for $1,300 (I can refund PayPal fees of $65 if you use eCheck or instead of PayPal.)
Magnesium Case
15.4" TruBrite Glossy Widescreen 1280x800
x700 128 MB Video
1.8 GHz Turion (2.0 Ghz +$35 I would highly recommend)
1 Gig RAM
60 Gig 5,400 rpm hard drive (100 Gig 5,400 rpm +$50)
54 MBps b/g Wireless
