Wouldn't you be better going for a cheap i3?

An i3 will almost certainly be quicker, and the Intel GMA HD gpu will be no slower than this machine's Radeon HD 4250.
Not sure how they're compare on battery life though.

What is the screen resolution of this Dell?
#2
My main requirement is gaming, but not many recommendations have been forthcoming.

Is Radeon not an ok graphics card?
#3
The 4250 out performs the GMA 4500 with ease.
#4
But depends what games you like playing ?
#5
Football Manager and Civilisation mainly. My understanding was that dedicated graphics is the way to go.

I wasn't referring to the crappy GMA 4500, I was referring to the on-chip GPU that most i3's & i5's have - the Intel GMA HD.
The Intel GMA HD is far better than the GMA 4500, and is considered comparable to the low-end gpu's from nvidia & ati (like the Radeon HD 4250).

Civ4?
You might be disappointed; the Radeon HD 4250 (or similar) will struggle with Civ4.
#8
I'm currently using an Acer Aspire 5920G with Radeon HD3470 (256MB), and it copes ok with Civ. However, Civ 5 is just around the corner so I need something future proof.

What is the minimum spec graphics card you would recommend?

You might be ok then, as the 3470 & 4250 are roughly comparable. It certainly isn't an upgrade in graphics capability though.

As for Civ5 - it's spec. requirements are significantly higher.
You'd be looking at a dedicated gaming laptop for it to have something similar to a 9800 GT/HD 4830.
