Laptop computers today are amazingly powrful, so naturally enough people want to play computer games on them. Gamers generally want the best gaming laptop computer they can afford, which means plenty of power and a large screen. For power in a gaming laptop you need to pay particular attention to the following - system RAM, cpu, video card.
RAM is a bit like money, you can never have too much, which at the moment means 4GB 1066 MHz DDR3. You can get 1GB but what's the point given that games are going to need ever more RAM, so why not be ready ? The large amount of RAM in your laptop will also ensure you can run multiple applications.

CPUs in current gaming laptop computers are powerful - such as for example the Intel Core i7 920XM that runs at 2.0GHz - in the Alienware M15x - and they need to be powerful, they also need powerful fans and so can be a bit noisy. One tip is to not put your laptop on a blanket !
In addition to the CPU and the RAM don't forget the battery. Gaming laptop computers need good batteries too - such as 6-Cell Lithium-Ion battery - as you will often be using it on the move. Some laptops even have a second battery.
Last but least is the video card. A gaming laptop computer needs a good video card. An ordinary laptop can get by with an ordinary video card but a gaming laptop needs a quality video card such as the Graphics 1GB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 280M for the most up-to-date games.
Some people say you are actually far better off with a desktop than with a laptop and that for the same money you will get a much better desktop than gaming latop computer could ever be, but that is to miss the point. Some people want laptops for their portability, you can't lug a desktop around with you, so really comparing a desktop to a gaming laptop is not comparing like with like. Gaming laptop computers have their place - but if you've got enough money then get a desktop and a laptop !
