I would get the M11x for its known gaming capabilities. Maybe update a few parts if you can, RAM, CPU or Graphics for example. CPU most importantly.

Um, the xps is the Dell gaming brand... It'll game just fine

The difference in the 2 laptops are obviously screen size, the mx11 is a netbook, and battery life, again the mx11 is better on batteries.

Both are good systems, but you need to decide on screen, mx11 is 11" and the xps is 15.6"
