I am deciding between two sperate laptops. Both have 4GB of DDR2 @ 667.

One is the Gateway 5387u
-AMD Turion II Ultra Dual Core M600 @2.4Ghz

The Other is the HP DV6Z
-ATI HD4530
-AMD Athlon x2 QL-64 @2.1Ghz

(Sorry, all I could find is an ebay link. That is where I would buy it from though.)

Im wondering what the performance of these two laptops would be.

Though the HP has a better and dedicated graphics card, Im wondering if the slower processor would bottleneck its performance.

Im looking to use it for some MMO's and a few other light games. (Regardless, Id like to have the most power possible :)  ).

Normally 0.3Ghz difference in speed wouldn't concern me, except for the fact that rated the Athlon processor at ~1000, and the Turion II Ultra at ~1500 (No, I don't know what their rating system is.)

Also, on a side note, the Gatway supports 802.11b/g/n WLAN while the HP supports only 802.11b/g. Is this a big difference?

Thanks in advance.
