Default Processor for Gaming

Hello I am trying to buy a laptop and I was just wondering which processor out of the Intel Solo Core, Intel Duo Core, Intel M, AMD Turion, AMD Turion x2 is best for gaming needs? Thanks.

the excuse would be that they are not truly intended for gaming. gaming laptops are just a side market that has opened to meet demand. i can understand if he has need of a laptop and would like to game on it as well but too often now people are buying laptops solely for gaming.
