as for the x1200, who knows. im sure some of the dells use a media accelerator x1300 which is s**t, and this is older, so i doubt it.
heres a quick search
it only ran well on low settings on my 128mb dedicated intel card on my last lappy

Mine has the X1300, It isnt that bad , its obviously not for gaming and i havent tried to game with it
Its just as the name says a media accelerator for doing all your general stuff such as playing DVD's and video files etc

Check your PM box about CoD4. If you want a shooter, it's probably a good choice.

my desktop pc only has 120gb hdd lol

your laptop would kick my desktop's butt for sure more memory more storage space etc the only thing that might beat your laptop is my rather old geforce3 graphics card even then im doubtful.
