Depends on the game.  I'm also quite satisfied with the
intel i915/i945 graphics.  If I had to buy a new laptop

The 3D acceleration is fast enough to play OpenGL games
such as ports/games/crack-attack smoothly at full-screen

One Unix to rule them all, One Resolver to find them,
One IP to bring them all and in the zone to bind them.

Intel's graphics line is ramping up too, so although the quality won't be as 
good as nVidia / ATI, it will continue to improve within the next couple years.
