I have an older Dell laptop that runs XP. I need to get a new laptop but know nothing about Vista. My question is: Can I play Direct X games like Azada, etc on Vista as well as XP? Some new games need 1 G processor. Any suggestions welcome.

Those games run fine on Windows Vista, but keep in mind you will at least need 1gb of Ram to play those games (2 is optimal for integrated video cards)
Windows Vista has Direct X 10 which is backwards compatible with other Direct X applications. Its very critical that you install the latest drivers for Windows Vista before you play any games otherwise your computer could become unstable and crash.
If you decide to upgrade to Windows Vista, it is very critical that you go to the Windows Vista website and download the Windows Vista Upgrade Advisor to check your computer for potential problems. If there are any found, it will notify you of them and will require corrective action.
On the Windows Vista Disc, it also scans for potential problems before upgrading.
Now onto your real question. Any of the laptops sold on Best Buy (Excluding Netbooks) will run those games just fine.
