counter strike 1.6 may not run that smooth cause the processor is a little on the slow side and the graphics card only has 32mb!!!

if theres a way to use some of the RAM from the somputer, which there usually is on laptops, then you'll be fine. and i run source smoothly on a 1.7ghz P4, so he'll be fine.
