The first laptop has a 360 and a faster cpu. You dont need 6gb of ram for gaming really.
Really, core i is so advanced it kinda stomps almost anything. In all reality a faster Core 2 Duo would do good for most all games but clock speed is where its at there. I have a p8400 and it hangs in everything but Supreme Commander where i need to use my i5 rig to use over 1000 units. If you can find something with an i7 620 it has a faster default and turbo clock speed but lacks in i think 2mb L3 which isnt that bad (6 to 4 i believe). I believe that CPU would be better IMO.
A hint for battery life usually is the better the architecture (mobile) the more battery life GENERALLY. A core i chip will usually use less tdp but also be faster when using turbo during heavy apps or games. With a p8400 and an OCed 9800m GTS in my Gateway on battery i get about an hour and 45 minutes. Over 2.5 - 3 with no OC on GPU and power saving features enabled. Thats not really to bad considering is a "gaming" laptop with a 17" screen but i also have an SSD in it and the HD is shut off unless being used.
