What are you spending on these computers? You might be able to build a computer for the same price which will pwn those 2.

Go with the Dell. It has a good graphics card, and the processor is decent. It should do fine for most games.

obviously if he wanted a desktop he would have said so he probably needs to be mobile.

go with the dell. definitely, better processing power loses against gpu/mem/hdd strength.
